Unknown Parasite

Unknown bug in human skin (blood too?)

I somehow got infested with a small bug that is NOT 8 legged (i.e. tick, crab,
scabies, bed-bug,etc.) but in its larger state looks more like a caraway seed with one end rounded. The smaller versions look the same. Some are speck sized. They have burrowed under my skin and will only come up when I apply bleach, Comet (that’s how I found out they were bugs and not thorns) or rubbing alcohol. My MD is baffled and I have consulted an Infectious Disease specialist who has sent samples (obtained after my GP gave me a parasite remover that I had to swallow (4 of them) on an empty stomach.
The specialist says she can’t identify them – or wouldn’t identify them until we got a lab report back. My secondary symptoms include SEVERE pain that radiates from the base of my skull down my neck and right shoulder. I’ve had to go to my MD for pain shot relief. She also gave me an anti-spasm, anti-inflammatory drug that seems to help. No one has EVER heard of this and, the specialist is so blaze’ about it, she didn’t even put a rush to the lab. There appear to be thousands of them in my skin and blood. (No exaggeration here.) I am going out of my mind. The little ones crawl out of my skin – especially when I’m hot (I have a jacket
or sweatshirt on) and I find them in my bedding in the morning or embedded in my
underpants. She said that they are NOT transferable, but I’m out on disability until we can know, for certain, what they are and how to kill them. My MD has ordered a CAT scan of my head (next Tuesday 11/16). I really can’t tell you much more about the bug, but it appears to have two translucent ”feeler”-like appendages that come out of the pointy end and sometimes stick out of my skin. (Breathing tubes?) I can’t see for certain, but I suspect that they have little, short legs on the sides of their ”caraway seed” shaped body and the larger ones have visible
lines that run across the bug (horizontally). They are both black and also rusty brown color. I haven’t been out of the country, but I do live next to a small river (Tule River) that has a pretty stagnant part on my land that I’ve had to wade into to clean off my pump filter. At this point I don’t have a clue where it came from. I just want it gone, and I’m loosing my mind. I also forgot to mention that I’m somewhat bug-phobic. HELP (if you can). I don’t think the photo I’m sending will be of any help. My digital just won’t give it the clarity. Just for reference, I shot the picture on a 8-1/2 X 11” piece of paper that I folded into quarter sized (4ths). I believe I’ve had this infestation for over a year, but just recognized them as ”bugs”.

Dear Frantic in the Foothills,
We sympathize with your infestation, but we are at a loss as to what this could be.  We are not medical specialists and we are very reluctant to give health advice.  We are quite curious what the specialist determines regarding this matter.

Dear Daniel,
Thank you for your response, even though you can’t identify the bug.  I have to admit the
photograph wasn’t the least bit helpful.  I did, however, just buy a microscope that has a
digital camera attached, so maybe you can at least identify the “bug”.  I firmly believe it
came from the water and not the land.  I don’t expect you to diagonse my infestation
(that’s why I’ve consulted an Infectious Disease Specialist), but knowing what the bug
(worm?) is would give me a kick-start.
At any rate, I’ll certainly let you know when I find out.  This is one for the books.  I’m going
to bypass the book and go straight to the screenplay.
Thanks again for responding.  Most sites would have just blown me off.
Regards,
Frantic in the Foothills (aka Jan)

Hi again Jan,
We wish you the best of luck in eliminating this problem and would be more than happy to post any updates you are able to provide including better quality images.  We try not to be alarmist but we cannot help but ponder how things like global travel and global warming are affecting the range expansion of species that once had isolated distributions.  Tropical diseases like West Nile Virus and Invasive Exotic species like the Emerald Ash Borer are wreaking havoc in areas where they have been introduced.  Water is a well documented method for the transference of pathogens there are numerous diseases that incorporate complex life cycles that include multiple unrelated hosts.  We are sorry we are unable to provide you with any concrete diagnosis.

Mine has cleared up. After seeing the dermatologist and seeing that they were indeed fibres, I rented a sunbed and after a few days all itching stopped thank god!! Still not convinced a parasite wasnt involved at some level, no reason for fibres to be getting into my skin if they werent being taken in, however, at present I am symptom free…touch wood!!

Update from Commenter John:  February 14, 2016
I am sorry your life is filled with so many troubles caused by these horrible creatures. I would like to have some doctor that called you crazy come and live in your house for a few days so they could experience what you do. But, for some reason, they just want to ignore these things and pretend that all of us are simply crazy.
My creatures infest my garage and fogging seems to make them angry. I can’t even open the door to the garage without being swarmed and then the itching and stinging begins. Like you I clean everything and spray every plastic and vinyl surface with 409 and then bleach and wipe it off to get rid of whatever it is so I can sit down without going crazy. I have had some good luck with tea tree oil on my body so I can sleep. I shower and wash my head with shampoo and rinse really hard. Then use conditioner which rinses out a lot of the creatures because they often sting me on their way down my face and body. Finally, I use tea tree oil shampoo to which I add about a quarter ounce off tea tree oil. I shampoo that in vigorously and leave it on for a while and rinse it out completely. I use the tea tree oil shampoo on my spots where I have a rash from these creatures too.
I dry off and towel dry my hair. Then I mix a small amount of cream with a small amount of tea tree oil and rub that into my hair and scalp. I let that dry naturally. I mix another batch and spread that on my rash. When I get ready for bed I sleep with a glad garbage bag over my pillow taped shut to enclose the pillow. I sleep on the garbage bag because cloth pillowcases seem to be good homes for my creatures and I itch all night. Each night I wash off the garbage bag with Clorox bleach cleaner and let it dry then go to bed. I sleep when I do this. My wife had me try just putting lotion on my head instead of my routine of tea tree oil but after a couple of hours of itching and scratching I showered again and did my routine with tea tree oil, replaced my garbage bag pillowcase and then I could sleep.
This life is close to torture. I am getting a hazmat suit and respirator, a compressor, paint sprayer and a gallon of tea tree oil and ivermectin and spraying my garage over and over until the darn things are gone from my garage.
Best wishes for a life without these creatures of yours,
John

  1. I have this same bug. I noticed it yesterday left floating in the bathwater, there were a few. I had eaten rye bread with a caraway seed that same day so I dismissed it as a seed until it looked like it was moving on its own in the water. I then scooped it up examined it in a glass jar and it was indeed moving on its own, and definitely NOT a caraway seed. I was alarmed to say the least. I looked thru the water to see if there were more. I wondered it this was the cause of the severe itching and bumps on my scalp and base of my neck where my hairline is. For a year or so I’d been experiencing itching and small red bumps on my scalp. On occasion it felt like something protruding from the scalp when it itched, but when I’d go to feel on it the bump would flatten and disappear as if whatever it was was recessing back into my skin. I felt paranoid and semi crazy but I knew something was there.the bumps are in the same spots, come back in the same spots and disappear when touched. I could find nothing helpful on the internet and my doctor thinks I have mental illness and paranoia. I finally caught something visible in a glass jar and will be looking at it under a microscope asap and doing more research. This picture you have looks EXACTLY like what came out of my bathwater, I will try the bleach and see if that works to being one or more out. I wonder if reg parasitic cleanses will work on it? I will keep you posted. Thank you for posting this let me know Im not the only one and Im not crazy!

      • It is some sort of flea that is using you as a host. Treat your yard, home, and pets and ALL living things. Soak in hot bath with 2 cups of baking soda, put baking soda solution in hair cover with shower cap for 15 minutes. Then put dawn original liquid soap on skin wait 10 minute then scrub gentley with body scrubber rinse . Put apple cider vinegar on hair put shower cap on wait 15 minutes. Apply vinegar all over skin. Take a fine tooth comb or flea or lice comb and comb hair so vinegar is all the way to the end. This will also remove eggs, and dead bugs. Repeat for 3 days in a row. Use Borax on all clothing. Borax sprinkle on carpet and upholstery and mattress. Brush in and cover for 7 days. Repeat till activity is gone. Don’t give up it will take 3 months to work through flea cycles. You ARE contagious! Good Luck, you are not alone and you are not crazy!!!! Took me 3 years of suffering before I was able to have a specimen identified as coming from the flea family.

        • I just wanted to thank you for the above info Bugman. I have been doing this and so far I have noticed a difference in the amount of parasites. I felt sicker for a while, then felt better than I have felt in a long time. I think it is because they are dying off. I will continue to do this. I did have a question on the 3 days and 3 months; how far in between do I continue the regimen? Chelsey

          • How r u doing these days? Were u able to clear this parasite? Most people just end up managing it. Rather than able to eradicate it. Treating internally too will help.

        • I have a question, do I bath in the water with the apple cider vinegar also or do I get out of the water and then apply ? And when I use the vinegar can it be the same batch with the baking soda or separate baths?

          Thanks, Rob

          • Hello Rob,

            You are supposed to spray on the ACV after the Dawn soap step. First bathe with the baking soda in hot bath water for about 15 minutes, then put on the Dawn soap all over your body for about 10 minutes, then rinse. Now spray with the apple cider vinegar. You can let air dry on your skin or leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse if you choose. I try to leave on, air dry, then I use a cedar oil spray and rub in as my final step. Hope this helps.

          • So what I do is bathe in hot water borax and peroxide once a week. Like a cup of borax and a quarter bottle peroxide in a tub. I am so grateful that I’m not loosing my mind¡ Thank God

          • I am uncertain to a specific amount. I took the comment from
            BugVeteran above written on July 14, 2015 @10:28 a.m. It helps, as I have tried the regimen. I am still battling this to this day. I try ivermectin, pour on formula and this also helps. You can buy at Tractor Supply Stores and I think on Amazon.

          • Please try a bath with baking soda a whole bottle of peroxide and lemon juice a little vinegar Epsom salts and you will not believe what will come out of your skin and then mix Nivea lotion with tea tree oil and use it on a regular basis it suffocates them also please go to a feed store and get a medication called albendazole you can take it twice a day it treats internal parasites and do not freak out about what comes out you have to drink a gallon of water a day with it but it kills every parasite in your body I would also recommend milk thistle and cascara Sagrada to help you get all this out of your intestinal tract because it will invade all other organs in the body and I have gone through this please please do it out bendazole Google it if you have to

          • Isabelle,

            You are in my prayers too. We can just try to help one another through this. I also use Relief Spray by Desert Essence with Eco-Harvest tea tree oil in it. It does help with the biting, especially at night I spray on my scalp after washing and they seem to bite less and as another author wrote, try NOT TO PICK! Them seem to get really pissed off and bite worse. (sorry for the language, but not sure how to explain). Amy

          • Be prepared for ur bath water to bubble up. Baking soda and vinager creates overflow of bubbles, we used it to demonstrate how a volcano works , with this mixture when I was in school lol. Just FYI. Cascara sagrada is very important. It is used as a laxative. It will clean u out good! Lol. It works best if u take before bed or a few hours after ur last food intake. Drink at least 8 oz of water. More is better. It can take anywhere from 6-12 hours to work. Depends how much food is in ur belly. If u take it in the morning, not good. If u work, ull be running to and from the toilet for awhile lol. Try it when u have the day off the next day. A good stuff tho.
            I used one made by SWISS KRISS. Or CRISS. It has cascara , senna, figs and other things all packed into the tablets. U only need 2 tablet. There is also a tea, called SMOOTH MOVE lol. Same things apply as with the tablets. The tea, u can make stronger or weaker if u wish.
            If u r also dealing with the weird biofilm that grows over the lesions and ur scalp, red reishi muschroom is super effective at breaking it.
            FEN BEN is much like albenzol. I know I spelled that wrong, it was mentioned above too. They both kill the parasites in ur gut. Then the cascara sagrada gets it OUT of ur system. If u can do laxatives, magnesium in high dose will have the same affect. U want to take enough mag. That ur pooping 3 times a day. It’s not as harsh as the laxatives. Be very careful of the flea drops, usually made with pyrethrum. Whichisfound natually chrysanthemums! It a neurotoxin the plant makes to kill bugs, that want to eat it kills fleas too. They used to use it in the flea drops buy for ur pets. But now it is a synthetic. TheCDC didn’t usedto be concidered toxic, but they r rethinking that. I was made very very ill by using it. My husband sprayed our bed and clothing with it. It gave me seizures. It also made me very sensational to every day chemicals things we r exposed to everyday, now make me sick.
            It’s called MULTIPLE CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY. U don’t want to get this AND morgellons or mites.
            People r gettingwell , cured even, using the FENBEN, RED REISHIE and MAGNESIUM. Mag 7. I think is what’s being used. Also the laxativ cascara Sagrada. It’s not fast. It takes time. But be consistent. It will DEFINITELY make ur life more manageable than it is now. Get rid of any mold, in ur home. Check all water outlets too. Washer , dishwasher, sinks and pipes. No leaks. This is mold and fungus. That’s what attracts the bugs to u.
            U r breathing in the mold and fungus spores. Watch ur diet. Reduce ur carbs and stop any sugar as much as ucan. Fungus mold and Candida all love sugar.

          • Bat bugs! I have no confirmation on this only the research I’ve done myself. However I know I am right and after reading all of your comments I am even now sure of my assumption. They look identical to bedbugs. They live in would and under your carpets, and uber your wallpaper. They are a parasite that feeds off a bats blood. If they do not have access to a bat they will move to a different host, they prefer animals but I believe a human is fine as well anyway I’ve been told I am crazy too but I’m very sane. Oh if you have an older bowstring that’s made of wood get rid of it. Do the research on bat bugs and let your doctors know. Please report back with what you find out because you are all much farther along in this process and have an easier chance of being taken seriously. I hope this helps. Thank you

        • If u don’t mind me asking, but u said, “…before I was able to have a specimen identified as coming from the flea family,” but where or how did u get it identified? Not doubting what you’re saying I just want to get more info. Hope u don’t mind me asking? Plus I would like to add…& again no offense to or that doubt anyone…but well they’re were 3 different bugs/parisites mentioned well can’t quite say that much for caraway seed looking bug except found one burrowed just beneath my skin but not on my head…I would rather not mention where I found it Anyway it was almost like a splinter but I couldn’t feel or knew it was there …I went got tweezers and yes it did seem to try and pull the small part of itself that stockpiling out further in I used tweezers and easily push that small part back out then easily pull it out with the tweezers like pulling out a splinter. Other than that no other bugs of its kind found yet or any effevidence showing it. I’m a cop and were training outside this field area had been know down to the ground a couple time plus hit ground when use tactics there us a creek near by…my guess that where I unawaringly I picked it up. But for the reddish like flying one that doesn’t fly so well or flys like a moth and u will find it around trash cans, Windows, are attracted to water, & they seem to be paralysed at certain times & you can find them around stagnant water…yeah uhm I don’t think that’s a parasite…however u very well could be getting bit after all ants tend to do that…about 2 years ago I had this particular bug all over my house and yes mainly bathrooms, kitchen (sink area) and around the Windows that We’re near these areas…they slowly started makeing their way throughout the house…here’s the thing I never went to my doctor I mean it was pretty obvious where my bites were coming from…so what do u do when u got a bug problem…u call an exterminator. I called terminex and they came out…they guy immediately said “yeah u got carpenter ants”…of course I told him, “well they have wings and don’t look like a typical carpenter ant…he said, “they’re not…they’re scouts which do look quite a bit different than colonies workers…These particular flying ones are typically smaller & and shaped differently with wings to fly, scouting out new territory…apparently they’re is a colony near by just outside your house…theyre colony size has become over grown and once that happens these drone scouts start being hatched to scout out to find new territory & once they establish a place a set up a colony then a new queen will be hatched and she to will have wings…she moves in and then sets up shop”…anyway he said its good that I didn’t go any longer without calling them bc it looked like it it was getting to that point when a new queen would be hatched. Anyway he was able to locate the colony just outside the house…he killed the colony and sprayed throughout the house…he came out like a couple weeks laters to do a follow-up spray…AND problem solved.

          • BR ,
            I had same burrowing problem with once matured or hatched, was a two winged tiny black fly. There was also another parasite that was like a fluke looking one. I have drastically reduced, but not 100% yet. These darn things are demons from hell for sure. Can’t believe it is taken so long. I wash every day, bathe, take internal anti-parasitic liquids, use a permetherine outside spray on skin, shaved hair, etc.

          • If it s morgellons or bird mites or mold related, it will most likely take a lot longer than three months to get rid of I’m sorry to say.
            be careful of people trying to sell you the cure and spending a lot of hard-earned money on something that probably won’t get rid of it
            it may cut down the numbers of the bugs but most likely won’t cure you. U.
            There is something called cedarcide.
            Says it will cure u. It’s very expensive. Doesn’t usually get rid of the problem. Even if it’s a bird mites it turns into something internal, prob from a bacteria that the bird mites carry
            Some people think this is lime related mine is from the tech bird mites and other biting bugs found can also carry the same diseases.
            Watch your sugar and take cut down on your carbohydrates try and eat a high-protein diet this helps a lot of people again it’s not a cure but it cut down the fighting and stinging sensation
            Part of the problem is different people get different results from different things a lot of this has to do with one’s own immune system
            Getting healthy eating healthy cleaning your environment and your body internally and externally will all make a difference if your house is super cluttered get rid of the clutter and get rid of the dust if you have mold in your house it’s just another place for them all to land Mark and become systemic meaning it gets inside of you and we can make you very sick hundreds of different kinds of bugs are then attracted to the mall it’s an in you and in your environment getting healthy eating healthy cleaning your environment and your body internally and externally will all make a difference if your house is super cluttered get rid of the clutter and get rid of the dust. if you have mold in your house it’s just another place for the mold spores to land mold can become systemic. meaning it gets inside of you and can make you very sick. hundreds of different kinds of bugs are then attracted to the mold thats IN YOU and in your environment.

        • I have some kind of infestation on my entire body. It looks like a small shrimp like thing nothing I have tried will get rid off it. I have taken specimens to the doctors and they are baffled even telling me to go to mental health which I have been going for eight years. They lay eggs and are white then they look like a tiny tiny shrimp and are about impossible to pull out. If anyone has heard of this please post [email protected].

          • Jeff,
            I had a similar or still have remanents of similar parasites. I have drastically reduced what I have by using a dog shampoo for fleas, like Sargent brand mixed with about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of bleach with a little water. I use this to wash hair and body. Also, you must treat internally with Ivermectin, can use the Pour on formula on Amazon, take amount per body weight, along with Valbazen also from Amazon taken per body weight. Then buy Marty’s permetherin and mix with either body lotion 50/50 mix or a coconut oil spray to spray body and scalp after bathing. I also eat raw garlic once a day. see if this helps and let us know.

Also, you must treat internally with Ivermectin, can use the Pour on formula on Amazon, take amount per body weight, along with Valbazen also from Amazon taken per body weight. Then buy Marty’s permetherin and mix with either body lotion 50/50 mix or a coconut oil spray to spray body and scalp after bathing. I also eat raw garlic once a day. see if this helps and let us know.

          • Go to your doctor and get prescribed Ivermectin.
            Take the amount for your body weight.
            Removes them.
            Spray brown vinager all over you and leave for as long as you can stand, then jump in shower and wash off.
            Purchase NuSTock from the USA website and mix 1 heaped tablespoon to 100ml of natural based cream and apply at bedtime for 4 nights. Use an oil to moisturise the skin the remaining 3 nights.
            Use Neem soap or body wash or get the old Sunlight clothes washing soap to shower with

        • Oh my goodness. Thank God for your post, bug veteran. I have been cleaning and scrubbing and doing laundry like crazy. Lysol is seriously on the list every trip to the store…. I brought one of these things to my doctor and told her they look like freaked but they are in fact bugs because I see them crawling in my house and they cause cystic like bumps but if which is really just some odd thing attatched on top of skin. Causing to infect area. My doc is sending me to a spych and assured me they were not bugs…. I KNOW IM NOT CRAZY though. I’m watching these things infest my home, my kids, my dogs…. and other extended family that we are close with. I too agree that they come from water. It’s becoming debilitating for me as I’m literally having panic attacks over these stupid little things…. I have a nephew who is autistic and he says “fish” when he sees them or looks at a sore on my body. I think the kinda look like a tiny skin wing when my son or I spit them up….. ugh!! Ok. Borax it is…..I’ve got to clear them out!!!

        • For those needing to rid their washable items:
          HOT water wash, but in with your detergent, add a little bit of permetherin (“Martins” 13.3%). I get it at the hardware store.
          Wash everything, and dry everything on the highest heat setting you can, but at least 30 minutes.Spray a mixture of the Martins with water (it will look like milk) EVERYWHERE.

          • I sent samples of the creatures burrowing into my body and living in my mouth to the Department of Agriculture to ID. They replied: “no mites found.” What are we dealing with?

        • I’ve been suffering for almost 3 years.ive tried everything…im tired. I have a complete fear of bugs. When i first realizrd, i stood there for hours, so scared to move or lay down an sleep. I wash constantly, also im germaphobic. I would rather have cancer, aids,anything but this. Its completely unbearable. I recently had bites and rash all over body. It hurts.ive picked 3 living crawling things out of my skin a couple years ago.one brownish, one whitish, and one reddish. The bumps kept moving under my skin when i went to touch them. Thoughti was losing it. I grabbed a pair of tweezers and dove right in quickly. Otherwise i wouldn’t of got them. Theres pry millions in me. Their in my bowel movemnts, everything. Except ive seen dpider type things, worm type things, seed type things, and fibre type things. Tired of not being taken serious, its ruined my life.oh and it completely ruins clothes as well. Its like having a layer of fiber glass all over my skin, and in my clothes. So I’ll try the sun bed. Thanks and yes ive found that essential oils and klean green enzyme works the best. Itsold bow and i have no life.

          • Hi MKB…I know the feeling and I absolutely empathize with your situation. Mine has been coming and going over the last two years. I noticed less activity in Summer but as soon as it gets colder the cycle restarts. My research led me to strongyloides: (I had baboons in my previous house that I think led to the infestation which I believe is zoonotic)
            https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/strongyloides/biology.html It’s a complex lifecycle of internal worms which lay thousands of eggs deposited outside of the body at night while sleeping. These worms are like hookworms which are tiny and inhabit my home until they are big enough to reinfect me through my feet or hands. My clothing, furniture, bedding…everything is contaminated. I have replaced my wardrobe and furniture several times. I now have a new normal. I wash my bedding every day in hot water. I tumble dry on high heat. I use diatomaceous earth liberally on my bed and floors and even on top of my sheets while sleeping at night. During the day I rub my entire body with coconut oil and clove oil and at night I use tea tree oil. I take mebendazole every three months. I drink diatomaceous earth capsules for 5 days in a row if I notice any new bites. I drink hot lemon water three times a day. I use aloe vera crystals for regular bowel movement. I include alot of fresh vegetables and certain fruit in my diet to boost my immune system. I sweep my living space 3 times a day. I wash my dog and dog blanket every day. I use bleach to wipe my surfaces and floors regularly. It’s a full time job trying not to get reinfected. Good luck.

      • Bugman,
        Here is a image of that unknown parasite. My flash was able to capture the cocooned stage. Over 2yrs having this and research I can tell you this parasite grows and has many images. A black dot, white flying or jumping stage, a casting over it that is brownish. Will this image help identifing this?

          • I have had problems with invisible stinging things for many years. I can’t say what they are because I have only seen some things in a microscope and have never seen anything like them on the internet. I got sick of it and moved but they came with me in my belongings. I got some sticky traps used by pest control people and placed them everywhere in my house and would use them to pat down where on my body I was stinging. I purchased a microscope with a camera and saw things that were really freaky. One of them is this creature under 40 power.

            I tried to upload the picture but failed. It is extremely small, less that a tenth of the size of a period. It is shaped like a pencil getting thinner toward the front where a long, thin tongue comes out and at the end of the tongue is a set of hooks. On the rear it appears like it has two or three long fins that look like propellers. I wish I could upload a photo because it is really unusual. If you want a picture of it email me at [email protected] under a heading of “itchy bugs” so that I don’t dump it as spam.

          • Is this the person in charge of this site? I have the same thing – I’ve chronicled my experience and am in the process putting together my story. I am interested in getting some demographic info on the other cases – it might help me narrow down the parasite although it does seem to be more than one – an entomologist told me once one “bug” establishes others take advantage. In my case my doctors have waited so long to attempt treatment that it may be lethal for me. I was asked to donate my body after death to help others get treatment faster. Let me know the best way to post to your site – I have hundreds of pics and research data – I just need to put it together in an easy story and slideshow. I wish I could get the attention of “Monsters inside me” – I believe MANY people have this- it’s horrible!! Let me know thanks.

          • But then how do we find the pic after they download it to ur site? I’ve seen so many people saying they have a pic of these parasites, but they can never figure out how to post the pic? What gives??
            Thank you.
            Thank you SOOOO much for letting people that have this parasite beable to use your web site.
            U r helping a lot of people, just buy doing that!!!
            Thank you for acknowledging that we people r not crazy. ???

        • I have been fighting the same bug(s) for 3 years. My observations lead me to believe that there are different bugs involved – the 3 main ones are a flying white bug which sometimes carries bits of fabric around with it, a black gnat which does not fly all that well (not sure but this one might grow out of the black specks) and a kind of fly which looks a bit like a fruit fly but looks more like a moth when it is flying around (again, not sure if the fly and the moth are one and the same bug) – it is normally reddish in color but there are sometimes dark greyish ones which are very similar. All of these bugs infest the clothes and then infest my skin / scalp. It does not seem to be safe to wash infested clothes with uninfested ones, so it does not take long before all your clothes are infected, which means a constant reinfection of your skin / scalp. And other bugs seem to be attracted to these bugs, so before long you are dealing with a host of different bugs. It is truly a nightmare! And if one more person suggests this is all in my head, I am going to scream! I would show them the bugs / let them wear my clothes to prove what I am saying but I know they would hate me forever if I infect them.

          • I think I have more than one type of bug too. I think the red shrimp like one is in the flea family. If you look at a future post, Bugman responded that to me, as another one was black in color with rounded on one end and that is what he had. He put up a regimen with Dawn soap, ACV, baking soda, etc. I know the feeling of if someone else thinks you are crazy, U R going to scream!!! Ugh!! help us all please!!!

          • I am battling this little critter right now!! I thought I was going nuts!! thank so much for coming forward i do actually have pictures as well. I will find them!!

          • oh my god! this is a yr and a half for me, i to am not crazy my room mate has seen my distress and all the madness that i have been through becaues of these parasites. i have researched and talked to ppl til i was blue or crying. i fucken hate it. i got the same 3 bugs /parasites as you described but a really bad infestation in my clothes. would love to know what kills besides windex. please answere back , i’ve already lost my min, lori

          • Bugsheretoo you are so right!! And I am dealing with exactly what you are dealing with. This is Morgellons. Co infection of Lyme disease. I know exactly what you are talking about regarding the different parasites. The tiny white flying parasite that seem to be activated by sunlight or just light. The black mite looking parasite. I’ve noticed a sperm looking parasite. This is truly a very complex and misunderstood illness. What I have realized by journeying through this Terrible illness is, that as you treat yourself internally, the external parasites in the environment will start to affect you less. You have to fight them from the inside to make your body strong so that you get rid of whatever you have aquirred that made them infest you in the first place. Think about it. We were not born with this hell of a illness. Something went array in our health that now we are suffering tremendously. I have tried everything to kill them in the environment. Ozone generator, fogger, bug bomb, all natural oils (which do help some especially neem oil) but nothing can arradicate them in our environment. They will always be in the environment. They are attracted to us for some reason. The environment seems to be more infested at certain times when my symptoms were at their height. Also what I have read and realize first hand is that some people are carriers but asymptomatic (like my husband). So as I treat myself full force, he just re infects me because he does not treat himself because he does not believe in the illness. I had to get tough with him and force him to treat himself because it is contagious in intimate ways. I don’t want to make it seem like it’s not important to clean the environment because we have to be cleaner than the average person. The key is to treat your inner and outer body, anyone in your home has to be treating themselves ( because they can be carriers of the parasites, bacteria,fungus or both that is attracting the parasites) and the environment meaning car, clothes, home . Basically anywhere you spend a lot of time has to be treated by OCD cleaning but that alone will not cure anyone of this illness. Also I have read that there are different forms of Morgellons infections. We seem to have it the worse. Some poeople just have the fibers without the parasites.

          • I wanted to add one more thing and I pray it helps someone reading my comments because I too have been in your shoes scouring the Internet in despair looking for answers but with little to NO faith in finding any. I would say to just think of yourself as a bug/parasite magnet. Think that you are not in your optimal health at this point. Think about it. if you are dealing with abnormal multiple parasites and most people don’t even believe you, and you are battling this without conventional medical help for months to years ( because in reality there is none available). You really need to start doing some real damage control! Meaning, you may never know for sure how your health got to this point but you need to focus on becoming a healthier person. Think about your habits before. Obviously not everybody who goes around you is in the same health state as you (regarding the parasites), so it’s time to reclaim your body or better yet your life. If you can, it may help if you can make an appointment with a Lyme literate Doctor. The problem is that there are so few. What helped me was researching Lyme co infection and also Morgellons infections on the Internet. There is so much differing information out there because it is so misunderstood but you can compare what you find to your own situation and find the legit info. That’s what has helped me on my path on the road to recovery. It is a long process of healing with ups and down but the key is to stick with it. I’m not saying that everybody on this thread is dealing with this illness but the multiple parasitic infection described is a classic symptom of morgellons or shall I say a co infection of Lyme disease.

          • Hello.
            I’m here in the UK….. EVERYTHING I buy in the shops here (or online or imported…. Japan China USA etc) ….it is ALL crawling. All of it.

            I destroyed my good clothes by washing with infected. Bought a Miele washer dryer etc….. Don’t waste your money! Once infected…. There’s no getting them out.

            My point is this: are new items there infected according to you?
            If so, then:
            1) others won’t notice them in your clothes (great for them.) Perhaps try on their clothing ….something they think is clean but which they no longer need or want? And….
            2) it’d probably be fine for them anyway.
            3) but pointless either way.

            However, despite years of suffering I very clearly feel them, when they are there, and I very clearly feel when they are not moving or then perhaps are not present in textiles/clothing. Yet, in all this, never have I seen anything.

            We are in another dark age of quackery….. Drs happy to call you mad. Kind friends chipping in too…… I say if they want an opinion…. Have them try on a top….. But ultimately what good will it do anyway? Chances are they’ll have immunity …..you don’t! ….so it’ll only ADD to their delusion, that YOU are deluded….. Personally, if someone NEEDS to rate you as mad, then say this: “OK, I accept that, because this is too scary for you to cope with, it is easier for you to believe I’m cracked! Well, I’m strong enough to accept that, just for the purpose of you preserving your own sanity, you can sabotage mine, haha :)”

I pull thi off of my skin which sometimes seems to pull like they are burning and have collected them on tape and paper and not one of the doctors I’m dealing with or even look at it. I drive myself insane I can’t even their summer clothes feel comfortable because some of the bite smelly itchy and bleeding it left scars to where I feel like a leper

I did not have this nightmare at that time nor had I seen anything like this!I’m certain it will be the cause of my death ,I truely believe it has gotten into my lungs and intestinal tracked,and it has completely destroyed my face and scalp!I’ve had my face cut open 7times above my eyes to release fluid ,that is never there just solid. Mass,only one Dr has actually noticed the little black something that moves under the skin,and can’t seen to be expelled, please tell me everything you know what you have experienced, Im so sorry that you have this nightmare,and in a seemly selfish way relieved to find someone else who can possibly understand I’m scared not crazy!

          • I also have had the tiny white flying bugs and have no idea how to get rid of them –totally annoying. I also had bites by what they call a “black fly” and I mean BLACK. It then turned into sores which turned into nodes and now they exit my skin as MAGGOTS!! I KNOW what you mean — all MDs thik i’m totally crazy and I’m sick of it. I’m nearly at the end of my rope and ready for the funny farm. great MDs we have! Good luck to both of us.

          • wow! Bill and I have been infected with this exact problem “bug” for at least 5 years. It has caused me to have a debilitating depression and a horrible phobia. I have been seen by doctors…..none believe me. they called psych on me. (I worked as an RN) I agree with all the different stages. And yes, they do infest clothing. Also everytime i would do a deep cleaning or moving of things in say…closets, we would have another outbreak. I cant tell you how many lice tx’s i have done. It does or did help. We moved. They came along much to my horror. They infest my fingers, especially the nail beds, bite my legs, seem to leave or cause vericose veins. I cry everyday, jump and yell when they bite. They won’t leave any part of me alone. (I do my best to keep them out of the genital region…seems to work) ALSO, OUR CAR IS INFESTED! My boyfriend isn’t as concerned as i am..but he had a total knee done and it looks awful. Would they have gone into the knee ? THEY WERE always on the scar line. These things do not move much, but when they do, they are fast. I have burned them..and that gets them moving. They are making me sick. So so sick. I use tea tree oil, bug spray, apple cidervinegar, different lotions – the thicker the better! We do have times of “remission”. they always come back. I don’t think they are bed bugs, (do bed bugs live under your skin , OR ON IT?) I also contracted M.R.S.A. from my boyfriend – he was very ill and admitted several times where he got it – the hospital. So is this a “skin issue and in my head? That’s what they want me to think. Why won’t the doc’s believe? They truly make you feel crazy. So, so tried of sores on me!! HELP!!
            Please feel free to contact me via email. [email protected]. TY, any advice is more than welcome. These bugs are pushing me over the edge. Why does it seem so suspicious that there are all these posts and NO DOCTOR’S WANT TO BELIEVE??

          • ditto on all you said. Are you still having the problem? Mine started about 3 years ago, seasonal. They come about this time and last til it gets cold. I’m starting to experience them again. What have you learned? Can you help?

          • I could have written your comments. I have exact same and doctor asked if I take meth? I sent some samples to an epidemiologist and should have report this week. Have you solved or found anything new? Thanks so much, Kristin

          • Please share the treatment with us, I had a drain fly problem right before this all started over 8 months ago. Ivermectin helped but I think I kept getting exposed.

          • I am very impressed that you found a doctor willing to diagnose you with drain fly myasis. I more or less gave up on doctors after the delusional parasitosis diagnosis I had 2 years ago and ending up in a psych ward having to fight for my freedom. I can’t believe the hell I have been through these past three years and the fact I am still alive to tell the story, well sort of. Last year, I decided to try a walk in clinic in another town. The first time I went in, I pretended to be looking for a cure for a skin lesion on my shin and ended up with some dovobet gel. Because he seemed like a decent guy, I decided to go back there and test the waters when I had a bug in my ear I couldn’t get rid of (I could hardly hear out of that ear and I could hear the darn thing fluttering around at times!). I didn’t mention about the ear but just said I had some new information which is that I thought I had myasis. He looked very shocked and asked where I had been travelling, and I said nowhere really. I knew there was no point in saying I picked up these darn bugs from the clothes you buy everywhere these days, made in China and Vietnam and full of some strange fungus which morphs into bugs or attracts bugs. Whatever. Anyway kudos to your doctor for giving you a half decent diagnosis. Did he suggest any particular treatment? Did he have any suspicion that you would reinfect yourself with you clothes? or did he have a suggestion about the clothes?

          • I believe I have the same. For the last 8 years I have been seeing these flies appear when I void. It seems to go in a cycle and the doctors just think I’m crazy. They tell me it was in the tolit. If it is aroud the cycle and I eat spicy food then they appear. What did they do for u? I live in Canada so maybe I can see the same person?

        • The brownish cast over that u spoke of is a biofilm. Bacteria creates biofilm. That’s why people think this bug and bacteria related. Look for extra moisture in ur home. Under ur home and attic too.
          Good luck.

I’m 74 and am plagued with bird mites for 8 years and since i’ve moved into this house where i presently live [in Asia], i’m now being literally eaten alive by a dozen parasites. Some are horrific, like the one i call the ‘super parasite’ that can create a nickel size hole in the skin in 30 seconds completely painlessly and has an anti-coagulant that produces radical bleeding that is impossible to stop, sometimes for hours. I tried killing the thing with 95%
            DETT Jungle Juice the other day and it made a silver-dollar-sized wound that took many hours to stop. I’ve only have had 6 attacks with this in 2 years using Permethrin ‘5%’ to stop the bleeding which works but takes hours to stop the bleeding and 2 months for the wound to heal. I too have problems with mites in my mouth. I used a lot of ‘5%’ over the last 3 years so the mites [t he morphing kings] began living under my skin to avoid the ‘5%’ and so developed the ability to enter my mouth when i’m sleeping because i have extreme dry mouth and they dig in on the insides of my lips which are becoming distend and freaky looking…also are living in my tongue and gums. So i can sympathize with the parasites in your mouth. It is the worst because the tongue explores the mouth constantly. I’ve had real problems with black dots everywhere but have disappeared when the mites started living ‘underground . My heart goes out to you. At 91, one deserves a modicum of peace and your burden of course….

        • Dear Audrey Kelley: These things living in my mouth, i ‘believe’ are mites mainly bec i have had them invade every part of my body over the last 9 years. They most NOW live under my skin where they attach themselves to veins or build conical dwellings that grow in length. They have been living in my mouth particularly in my upper and lower lips. The last time i took Ivermectin {I did it 2 days in a row-Big Mistake] a month ago. [I do it every month but will stop this when the remaining doses are gone] My upper lip like really swelled up and my normally thin lips got way extended and have remain so for a month tho’ it is going down a little. If i run my tongue on the bottom of my upper lip, i can feel things inside my lips. My lower lip where i first had them invade open up a mite-sized slit that have been there a year now and refuses to heal…tho’ it will close up for awhile [minutes really] when i use Listerine. It burns the mites and i believe this is NOT a good thing for when under attack, they multiply causing more swell. This is everywhere on my body when i attack them with, Permethrin 5%, alcohol really drives them crazy and the will IMMEDIATELY burrow into you skin. NEVER use alcohol on mites…NEVER. I wish i could be MORE specific as to what is living inside my lips and and gums but these creatures bury themselves but dont want to come out. Some of the ones in my gums move around but i have only found a few mites. I will keep you informed if i learn more. They are the ost annoying of the creatures eating me up body and soul….SE Asia

      • Bugman,
        Here is a image of that unknown parasite. My flash was able to capture the cocooned stage. Over 2yrs having this and research I can tell you this parasite grows and has many images. A black dot, white flying or jumping stage, a casting over it that is brownish. Will this image help identifing this?

      • Dear Bug man,
        I have done so much research, as this speck has effect my whole family, also follows you where ever you go, went to the emergency room at the hospital, was not even allowed in due too, in case of scabies, which is not. After so much research, we truly believe the small black speck, that feast on humans are,
        Domestic Starling Mites – Bird Mites aka bird lice
        Ornithonyssus Sylviarum ( Northern Fowl Mite )
        Ornithonyssus Bocoti ( Tropical rat Mite )
        Ornithonyssus Bursa
        Reason for so many different mites, as they travel. Different country, also different mites, especially in Australia, but here in the USA, the rat Mite is the main cause, so small, that doctors do not believe, but in all old buildings, and some new, from animal to animal, they spread, through cracks, vents, windows, sidings of buildings.
        So small, that are not noticed till , we are effected. Now to treat, still searching, but at least being heard from doctor’s as they believe the Mites can do harm. So hope this help many of fellow victims to this parasites. Thank you, for having a place we all can come too in our hour of need.

          • I responded to a website on parasite article. Good information – it might not be posted yet. A remedy suggestion:
            I have had a terrible time with ‘parasite’ worms as well as super lice (crawls under the head and embeds in blood supply). The short story to a remedy suggestion is to treat with Dr. Hulda Clark’s parasite herbals of Wormwood, green black walnut, and Cloves. These three kill the larvae, babes, and parent host. Without killing all three, the cycle will continue. By day 20 there will be good results with Dr. Clarks formula. http://www.drclark.net/cleanses/beginners/herbal-parasite-cleanse/parasite-chart-for-adults
            My head has the super lice (no known medical remedy). I use a betadine mix with Kleen Green (citric acid and enzyme base -spray on animals is okay). This does something to the parasite nervous system. http://www.naturalginesis.com/kleen-green/. Next, I apply the NixAll, which is a new product for treating mange and serious bacterial like streptococcus. http://www.nixall.com/collections/all. Finally, I add menthol grease like Vicks to the hair and stubborn parasites. Do not wash hair for easier combing and super lice does not like menthol.
            Since the super head lice (sklice) is a parasite, the Dr. Clark formula is working. Consider supplemental to build the immune system and a parasite regimen for life (Review Dr. Clark). So, far, I have been cleaning and scrapping sklice for 3 hours morning and evening as well as tossing the bedding in the dryer for 50 minutes. Parasites cannot live in 137 degree heat. I recommend covering the furniture with plastic as some parasites live for up to 21-27 days without a host.

      • Hi. I am having issues, possibly w/this same thing. I have something that is on me and my dog. My vet, and so far an ER doc (b/c there is what looks like an egg sack) in my lower eye lid, can not ID what these things are! Several nights ago, I noticed very small white spots coming up out of the carpet late in the evening (I’m in MN). Anyway, I started picking up a few w/pin-nose tweezers and looking at them under a jewelry microscope I have. The flakes in the carpet look like almost very small sesame seeds, except are white. I found a bunch of what I think are eggs, and these look like broken grains of rice (abt. 1/4 or less of a grain of rice- very small) and under the microscope, has cracks in it. These are also bright white. I did find one of these creatures/mites/what ever the hell they are, and it was white and powdery. It looked almost like a piece of oatmeal, except again, bright white. Once these things die, they change color to a goldish color and under the microscope, look like either dead skin or to me, like a dried “booger” (sorry… LOL I don’t know any other way to describe it!). And, honestly, that’s what I thought they were for the longest time, dried little boogers from my dog, because sometimes, he has projectile sneezes (and I do try to clean them up, but, sometimes, we miss things. In my mind- that was the only thing I could think of as to what these little gross looking things could be). I have seen the straight “line/straw” looking things- (there are a whole bunch in my dog, I’m sure they are everywhere), others here have mentioned. I put coconut oil on my dog last night, and all of a sudden, tiny, black things fell off of his face and whiskers! These look just like what lice nymph look like from what I’ve seen online, except these are black. I don’t have anything in or around my house to suggest that these are bedbugs. Plus, these things are infesting me and my dogs skin! I’ve been putting a salicylic acid face toner on a washcloth, and then applying where I see the spots on my skin. The things get “angry” and die! I did one on my dogs ear, where I could see a black spot. The thing shot it’s legs straight out then, it appeared as a parasite of some sort, round with the legs on the body. I got a pic of it. On his body, from the ones I’ve found, they are all different sizes- ranging from specks to the one I just mentioned which was about the size of a small pumpkin seed. I have an extremely strong feeling these are internal as well. I have q-tipped a few out of my ear (microscopic size-but visible to tweeze) and was able to see they were still the mite or what ever they are. Right now, I have a lump, which I initially thought was a worm inside the lower lid of one eye. The doc gave me antibiotic eye drops. After using these last night- I started feeling things coming out of my eye (I’ve also had an eye twitch in the same eye where the “thing” is under the eye lid). One thing I tweezed out, looked like a very tiny worm or larva. I have small bumps on my body which I can pick right off. I have some that are under the skin. I have a whole bunch of “freckle spots” that have just appeared” and now if I put the salicylic acid toner on those, or like a hand sanitizer, the parasite shape will appear. Some actually will drop/sink deeper into the skin- and it’s very painful! I think they start out clear on the skin. My vision has been affected- blurry. The antibiotic eye drops seem to have helped already… I’m actually very concerned about this because I’ve had a lot of pretty bad head/scalp pain. My hair has been falling out, to the point where I look like I’m going bald, and I’ve had thick, thick, thick hair always. I’ve had head pain and headaches that are not typical w/one I normally get. I can only imagine what my dog has been going through!!! 🙁 He has new lumps, spots and other things I can see on his body that now, I know are all related to this. I picked one of the “white, sesame seed” looking things out of his hair 2 nights ago, and held it in between my thumb and forefinger while trying to find something to put it in… the thing literally DISAPPEARED into my finger without leaving a mark, but it hurt like hell, burning and hurt all day yesterday too! I don’t know what these are I have absolutely no idea how we got this, unless the dog picked it up outside somehow? but I’m so careful , or if it was a dormant thing in the house I’m renting and it just went crazy now, or- the dog and me have had it and it’s just now get so bad that our symptoms are awful, but then again, I know I would have noticed those things in the carpet prior to now… I notice everything. Oh, these things feed on blood- there have been small blood spots on pillow cases and sheets in the shape of bodies of these parasites. I’m beyond horrified and disgusted! If anyone has found what these are, please let me know! Oh, I also have some “freckle” looking spots on my body that are dry and these are also these parasites. They are very light color, but if I scratch it w/a fingernail it will come right off. Thank you for any help or advice! I will be doing tons of laundry… eeeeeee! Please HELP. Thank you.

        • Hi Frankie,
          The parasites sounds like what I and another family (retired MD) have been working through for 8-months. You probably read my post from March 1, 2017 (Susan) with herbal suggestions. This is a parasite and most likely a fungal relationship with the ‘bed bug’ or exo parasite. If there was a ‘marriage’, the ‘exo bed bug’ became internalized and became an ‘endo parasite’ with the fungus and can exist on the inside of the body; thus the walking feeling under the skin.
          I and the other family had similar walking sensations and on two of us there was an eruption through the skin. This created a hardship of the ‘parasites’ coming through the skin and having to comb the hair for 4-hours in the morning and evening as the baby parasites wanted to grow. The parasite attached to the scalp and a tentacle around the scalp blood vessel. After, the hair must be covered so not to pass to other individual. After 5 months of the modified Dr. Clark http://www.drclark.net/cleanses/beginners/herbal-parasite-cleanse/parasite-chart-for-adults regimen the holes in the head cleared with some parasites still internal. At this point, we are still on the Dr. Clark parasite regimen. The ‘doc’ has experiment and went off of the Dr. Clark formula for a week and the walking sensation with a bump formed on the scalp. Once on the regimen the walking and bump receded. We (three) have agreed to not be infectious to others by remaining on herbals and parasite cleanses for life.

          The fungal spores can be reduced with added herbals such as turmeric, 10:1 oregano, cloves, and diatomaceous earth internally. Also, look at coptis discussion from Dr. Suzy Cohen a registered pharmacist. She has also written The 24 Hour Pharmacist. http://suzycohen.com/articles/coptis_hashimotos_berberine_marcons_msh/

          Purchase Kleen Green https://www.amazon.com/Kleen-Green-Naturally-Concentrated-Formula dp/B002R29D48 which is a natural mix enzyme in citric acid. This will force the molt and kill within 10 minutes. Use this in combination with borax laundry powder which greatly the ph factor. This must be mixed in hot water to totally dissolve the powder. Wash and clean the carpet with this formula every day. You can use the mix as a spray and sweep or vacuum and then change the bags immediately placing in plastic.

          Another floor cleaner (rated higher than bleach for parasites) would be Lysol, which eliminates the fungi. For laundry use: 12 oz. of Lysol, about ¼ of the normal detergent, ½ cup dissolved borax, and about tsp. of dawn regular. Washing time should be at least 16 minutes with the hottest water available. Every morning take the bedding, pillows, and clothes from evening into the dryer for at least 37 minutes. Clothes should be worn once only and either placed in the dryer or the wash. Towels should be daily washed and or dried if not used much. The healing from parasites would be faster if the carpet was removed. Another idea is to place plastic on the carpet followed with a board to help with less parasites.

          I took my cats to the veterinarian and he agreed the external bed bugs can affect animals and human if the immune system is low. He also said this is more rare than common.
          Consider parasites remedies for your dogs. Most likely the pets are picking up the parasites from the carpet thereby entering the body.

          I surely do not have all of the answers, but let me know how the next few weeks go with the regimen. Get back with further questions. Susan

          • Hi. Thank you. I have my dog being treated for tape worm and external parasites as well. Now that the meds for him are working, all of the parasites are not bothering me!!! FYI info for anyone on here with any pets. The microscopic black spots, white flakes, white burrowing things and sesame seed things all are related to what my dog has had that were transferring to me. I am waiting to find out if I too have a tapeworm… yuck! thank you all for the information!!!

          I have been having this mite issue since the summer when I transplanted a plant into old soil. I knew better…but it killed the plant, a 22 year old Mandevella. They next day, I had broken out on my arms and upper chest, everywhere I carried the plants.
          At first, I thought it was a scale insect, and still do to a point. The biting stage (white with a tiny black head). Then, I pulled them off, and the tiny black pepper mites (stage 2 I believe) move into the top layer of skin. If I do nothing, that black dot will turn into what looks like a freckle in the shape of a sperm…flat and brown to red-black (stage three and reproductive stage). If I pick one off at this stage, there will be at least six smaller mites travel in a direct line until they find new untreated skin…process begins again.

          If this sounds at all familiar, please let me know. I’m going to post it on the website, because it’s important to document this horrifying experience.
          But take heart…you’re not alone.

          • First, what is your website? Second, DON’T pick at these things. You pick only the top part of the mite or the whole thing but the problem is if the mite has been there only minutes, it has laid eggs which will start coming up one at a time forever it seems. I found that knowing where it is, is important. I use Permethrin 5% on it until dead which takes days of constant applications [they are HIGHLY immune on my body from over-doing it and is really difficult to get in the USA – i live in the tropics and they use this for head lice instead of the 1% used worldwide….but i have written the dangers of Permethrin 5% many time on this site.] They will start burrowing into the skin and attacking veins and living there in Quonset hut-like thing…ie long and narrow. I’ve had them for 9 years getting them from pigeons. They have destroyed my life for there is no cure. At first they eat skin and can be pulled off when walking around. The ‘devil-like tail’ you see at the end of their body is an egg laying mechanism. Susan and Sharin and several others have ideas on how to handle them. But remember, if you pick them, they will bleed a tiny bit and this feeds their young. DON”T pick, find something to apply. I have used Triamcinolone Acetonide 0.2% [Google it] and it will kill the mite in time. If you don’t pick the mite it will stay there. My wife uses Pure coconut oil and tea tree oil a little stronger than the 12 to 1 recommended. Plenty of people in US to help you plus a more variety of combatant that i cant get.

          • AndInVa: You are the first one that has an crazy experience so close to mine. I work in my yard a lot and had no problems but a few months ago I got something on my arms from the older part of the garden. (It looked like a white fungus) I immediately washed with soap and hot water. It did no good.

            Soon after I got rough and itchy patches on my upper arms. I’m very fair skinned and my arms had an orange, tan color. Then I saw lines and designs under my skin on my legs which also had the orange color. I had no idea what they were. I also found I had orange, waxy looking lesions on my right side of my back, side and on my chest. Next came red, raised bites on my stomach. I was told it was hives. Now they are on my arms, legs, and back too. I’ve seen different doctors and we have concluded whatever the insect, I am allergic to it, thus the terrible bites.

            I use sulphur soap and sulfur salve everyday in the shower. I also have something to numb the bites and help with itching.
            The most aggravating part is that none of the doctors want to acknowledge the moving, biting, and bruising bugs under my skin. If I am allergic to the bites then I must get rid of the critters that are under my skin biting me. I appreciate this forum.

        • You have just described th e last year of my life I’m going crazy and everyone looks at me like a methhead. I feel so bad for my dog I’ve had him to the vets they look at me like I’m abusing my dog I felt horrible but they find nothing. I had skin biopsies done they come back with nothing. I’ve seen them pulled them out of my body. A lot of the marks on me have 2 dots or holes and I have like slot of skin that’s thick and hard I gave been using the files for my feet on lots of my body. Also I notice they can harden the skin around them if u try to use tweezers or something to try to get them. Anyone else have any of this please email me at [email protected]

      • I have this they are doing studies on it and calling it Morgellons disease at this rate they won’t figure it out it’s not a disease it’s a parasite or should I say parasites I’ve seen well over 20 different forms on me and in me plus fibers and it acts as a spider sometimes I’ll feel as if I’m walking through cobwebs or I’ll find conwebs coming out of my skin. And I can’t tell you all the symptoms there’s millilons I have a ton of pictures I just had a baby girl she’s 2 now its my first child I love her so much she’ got me clean and off drugs and finally I was so happy with life now I want to kill myself I’ve never had this thought in my life but I want to die I’m scared I’m in pain I hate myself and my miserable me exsistance now I know she has it I cant stop crying for her its a horrible exsistance I dont know what to do and nowhere to turn.I don’t know how to post the pics it’s not a flea but it’s a bunch of things and now it seems bugs like to bite me and use me as a smorgasbord. I wish I was making this up but I’m not.

        • Please please please u guys. Go to FB. Look up morgellons support science run by steve beddingfeild. He’s not selling anything. But they have put together a protocol that is helping people. Yes. U r correct. There r parasites involved. Their is also mold and fungus involved. The fungus maybe transmitted by the bites of the parasites. This is good site. It’s not a fast cure. But u will be able to start managing it. The biting and itching will be reduced often in the first week. No dr is the USA is going to help u. I don’t know why. Other than they don’t believe it. The study that the CDC put on is over. They r still calling it delusion of parasitosis DP.
          It’s. Not. It’s real ur not crazy.
          One of the ingredients used to treat this is fenben short for fenbenzadole. It kills the parasites. Please check out his site
          U need to take about 3-4 things u can buy them at animal supply stores. Sounds crazy. But it’s no more crazy than the disease itself. U can also read about fenben. I just found a site called fenben fever that also has a protocol. Check ur house for mold. Mold and fungus is also involved in this. Don’t kill urself. Don’t leave ur sweet baby. U will get so much support at the this site. Steve has 2 sites. One is the learning about it the other is the protocol / treatment.
          Just check it. Read and talk to these people. Ask questions. He has over
          10,,000 people between the 2 sites. That’s because he’s gettibg results.
          Check it out. Please. I benefit in no way.
          But I had this years ago. I have never forgotten how miserable it was.
          Take care
          Don’t give up.

        • Hi Chris, I was just reading an email that was sent today from another poster, but I started reading more post and came across yours. Your post is from 2 yrs ago.

          How r u doing now? March 2019 ?Any relief? How is ur little girl doing. Hard to watch ur kids suffer. We feel helpless and guilty as parents. Did u ever find ur way over to the FB site? I talk about it often here. It’s a great site. They have put together a protocol for this affliction. U can buy everything u need, on line. Amazon carries most if not all of it, Walmart has some of it too.
          It’s not a SPEED TREATMENT, so far, nothing works FAST. But there r a few protocols that r giving people their lives BACK!
          Hope hear back. If not, be good to yourself. U r not crazy.
          Oh, I’ve read a few ways of getting rid of that cobweb sensation too. I can direct u to a video I came across. It’s complicated to explain just in words. But I’ve seen this method mentioned several times. Independently of the YouTuber I watched. I hope u will check out the face book groups. There r many. Some r full of conspiracy theories. Just avoid those. They r false and won’t help u. go to GROUPS in Facebook then do a search under groups for
          MORGELLONS SUPPORT SCIENCE. also
          MOLD and MORGELLONS SUPPORT PROTOCOL.
          if nothing else u can talk to others with symptoms like yours. The protocol is safe for kids too. Babies and ur pets. U must treat ur pets too. Even if u don’t think this is morgellons, go there. Ask tons of questions. He is able to back up what he says.
          This is mold fungus and for many mites and other microscopic critters.
          I have watched Steve’s site grow from 3,000- to 8,000 members. This is because more people this is because MORE people r getting this AND because people r hearing about and using the protocol.
          U can find me on messenger.
          Sharin Bradshaw, also on the 2 sites. Once u get on the sites, tho, there r people better informed than me, that r also happy to help answer questions.
          Don’t worry. I’m not selling anything lol.
          I just try to help people connect the dots and make sense.
          There THOUSANDS of pictures u can SEE, some from the moderator of the site and from other members too. The pictures help a lot.
          Ask lots of questions. Nothing is to weird when it comes to this.
          One last thing. R u a Gardner? Or work with soil? Or pets, some farm animals ?
          Hang ithere

        • Chris did you ever get better? I’m going thru the same with my 18 month old and they want to call it scabies! I can’t live like this. I’m finally clean and happy and BAM this came out of nowhere!? Almost EVERY ONE of these comments hit home so hard that I’m crying because my husband doesn’t believe me he thinks I’m nuts. I walk around with cleaning supplies and oils, lotions, aloes, sprays, nothing seems to work for long they eventually get used to it and any relief I once got I never get again. I’m at my wits end. I CANT LIVE THIS WAY. I can’t afford to do massive laundry everyday, or have time for regimens like the ones above. I can’t function. This is sickening I can’t believe there isn’t more information online about it. Just seems very fishy that Doctors haven’t talked about it at conferences or whatever and noticed how many people have this same issue. It seems to change as time goes on and scabies treatments make it angry and so so much worse. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. IF ANYONE HAS FOUND A TRUE CURE PLEASE PLEASE I BEG OF YOU HELP.

          Scared to include email but lost and ready to give up on all of it….they all think I’m crazy, then lock me up and treat me till it goes away IDC how it goes away just make itngo away. Multiple stages of life, gooey substance that seems to seep in or out (can’t tell) of skin and sometimes creates an indent like an acne scar (never had acne but now have these digits everywhere) they seem to have tunnels or burrows they travel in after reaching a certain size and they get big (I MEAN SCARY BIG) to where I can feel them moving from my lips (which swell horribly like x4 normal size when they are moving inside them) into my gums (they’ve eaten away my gums almost completely and my once beautiful smile is now full of gaps and lined teeth, did I mention they are IN MY TEETH???) then they go into my sinuses, my eyes (the worst worse than the mouth) blur my vision I permanently see Multiple black dots and squiggly translucent lines like hairs that change shape and location (but wye dr calls them floaters, uh huh) then they go to my temple up my hairline and finally into my scalp where I believe they have some kind of colony. My hair falls out at an alarming rate but it doesn’t matter because I can’t wear it down because these dandruff flake looking things and tiny white mite like dots travel down my hair and go back into my face or fingers or my child which scares me then I find them in her hair, but they don’t look like lice at all?!? I haven’t witnessed the “nats” but lord help me this CANT get worse, I won’t survive it mentally, I’m past my breaking point I was so beautiful now I don’t recognize myself and I’m losing weight scary fast. It seems to get worse at night starting around 4pm and only gets worse until I am up for days and finally crash (which doesn’t help but I can’t sleep). I’m very ADHD which I’ve managed my whole life but my mind doesn’t stop and I’m hyper aware of everything on and around me. We can’t ALL BE CRAZY!?!? Just this week noticing the ‘hairs’ that don’t burn like hair attached to some kind of something. Then there are these strange looking feather like things all over the place especially under my car seat its scary how many there are under there. They are short with super short sides which you can barely see didn’t know they were feathers till I really looked and now they are everywhere. Sorry for the jumping but it’s 2021 and STILL NO INFO ONLINE? Something isn’t right. I’m not a conspiracy theorists by any means but come on….too many have had this issue for too many years and no info except on forums? Medical professionals don’t recognize it at all other than a delusion? Ridiculous. We deserve better.. ..

      • I am going crazy with what sounds like the same thing. When I get hot or have other chemicals in my body I get these tiny black stick like things that make me itch n feel like they are biting me. Sometimes they leave little welts. Believe they come out of pores n hair folicals as head itches like crazy n they come off my eyelashes, up n down. They will burrow into my skin usually at a diganol direction n sometimes can catch them first. Some hurt more then others. Most of them I get on my face, neck, chest and shoulders. Also I do notice when I am in the mirrow lightly scratching them of face, under chin, neck n chest that ones in sink are also brownish or rusty in color. This has happened to me at least 5x this year. I thought they may have had something to do with the fact that just over a year and half ago I went through a major tick situation in which I had about 25 ticks out of a lot more that burrowed into me n those ones where not able to get out. Oh thank you to one who wrote the original description as I was not finding anything n new I was not, well couldn’t possibly with symptoms be freaking out.

          Apply at bedtime 3-4 nights a week.
          Mix also Coconut oil, neem oil, cedarwood oil, lavender oil and rosemary oil and apply to hair and vagina areas at night for 3-4 nights. Wash out in the morning.
          If you can swim in salt water or a salt water pool, it is advantageous.
          Wash all of your sheets and cases every day and put your blankets/doonas in sun all day.
          Low Odour clear kerosene is great for mopping out and adding a capful to your wash.
          You can spray your mattresses and pillows with this as well.
          Your car needs to be sprayed every day as well as they live in there.

        • Dee, you have written the closets story to mine!! Almost exact as if I could have wrote it. All the others had some veriations but yours is exact. I to was infested with close to 25 ticks burrowing into my body to never come out about 1.5-2yrs ago. Soon after is when all these parasites started. They have mellowed down a lot but still have. Have tried a lot of the home cures in here but not sure what will ever get rid of them. Amazing we basically have same name to. Please contact me as the ticks, the head itching, the eyelashes everything you stated that all the others did not is my story. Has to be at least for us some type of Lyme thing from the Ticks

        • Dee, not seeing my reply to your story but wanted to get in contact with you as your story is 100% identical to mine. Including about 25 ticks into my body about 2yrs ago but exect symptoms in exect places mostly

          Reply
        • Dee, I have replied to your story a couple times as your story could have been written by me including the ticks. Some of the other stories have some differences then mine but not yours. If you could please email me back so I can ask you a couple questions and maybe we can help each other get rid of this nightmare that would be so great.

      • I’m lucky, my Doctor knows I am not crazy, he’s seen them move.

        I have been having this mite issue since the summer when I transplanted a plant into old soil. I knew better…but it killed the plant, a 22 year old Mandevella. They next day, I had broken out on my arms and upper chest, everywhere I carried the plants.
        At first, I thought it was a scale insect, and still do to a point. The biting stage (white with a tiny black head). Then, I pulled them off, and the tiny black pepper mites (stage 2 I believe) move into the top layer of skin. If I do nothing, that black dot will turn into what looks like a freckle in the shape of a sperm…flat and brown to red-black (stage three and reproductive stage). If I pick one off at this stage, there will be at least six smaller mites travel in a direct line until they find new untreated skin…process begins again.

        If this sounds at all familiar, please let me know. I’m going to post it on the website, because it’s important to document this horrifying experience.
        I have photo and video. I’m willing to post if you let me know the best way to upload.

      • i feel i have something similar there is the itching skin bumps the are black spots under my skin that resemble black heads if you do mess with them, you can squeeze them after a week or two. There are black and white hair all over my house I suspect they have a part in this whole itching thing. I also feel I am crazy my husband cannot see anything either. I have also found small worm lie thing crawling on my skin and if you have an open cut they run to to the to get in, the blackhead things also end up in the cut.

        • Hello to everyone reading thisnreply i have had similar circumstance, as all of your storiesnsound oh so familiar. There is a complete regiment to follow that is attached to what im going to tell u to try…so if this works, message me and ill find all the info for you. This was THE ONLY thing that truly helped me. Okay it soundsnbrutal…and it is…but it works! You need 1) a box of borax 2) a bottle of antibacterial dish soap (it can be the cheapestone) 3) a.small bottle of glycerine liquid. You can get the glycerine at walmart in thw health and beauty section. You start off with boiling about 5 cups of water on the stove. When it begins to boil…take it off the heat and quickly add 1.5 to 2 cups of borax to the water. Now add 1/2 to 1 cup of antibacterial dish soap to the mixture. Now while it is piping hot, you mist takena washcloth and rub this mixture all over the body as if you were bathing with soap to wash the skin. You can let it dry on the skin if you wish. You want to wash the entire body while the water is extremely hot. When u have finished, you can rinse off quickly, then you will dry the skin and immediately apply a layer of glycerine to the skin. At this point you will see these little creatures.popping up to the surface of your skin and they will be dead. You can just wipe them off. The borax kolls most of them and the glycerine kolls the rest by cutting off their ability to breathe. There is alot more to this but i urge you to give thisna try and shoot mema message if it works.for you. There isna total body system that cleansnout your internals at the same.time so i will give you all that info if this seems to work for you. I know it is absolute hell u are goong thru. I love u all and will ne praying for you. Email: [email protected]

        I sympathize with you as I have almost the same symptoms with the red-like shrimp things, brown and black straight lines, and some like round dots, and some like the above mentioned round on one end, pointed on the other.

        • I had these all in my scalp and skin. I was really, really sick. I have used Kleen Green which has helped a lot. I am still trying to kill these things. My doc. diagnosed me with scabies and prescribed the permethrine 5%, which of course did not get rid of them. I have some photos, just need to figure how to put them up here.

          • Hi there. So sorry your dealing with this. Is there some way you send me the pictures through email.
            P lease?? My best friend has these. She rents a house from me in arizona. I’m in Washington. Your description with the crater and 2 holes is the first j e heard besides my friends. I’m wondering if people were to dig a bit deeper they too might find those 2 holes. She has most of the other things described. She thinks it maybe one bug that gets in her skin , lays eggs, those hatch, then what ever it is goes thru several different stages. She also just noticed that the draidrains have a bunch of white teeny flies or black or both. I can’t remember which color. Plus there is the question on whether these bugs carry any type of fungus, or if this bug carries its own bug!? A mite that carries a different mite on it. I’ve read that several times Anyway like I said, I w would love to see your pictures. She lives as lone. Is clean, clean house, She said this all started after a huge rain storm. Several branches fell from trees right in the yard. Lots of birds, doves, starlings and grackels all roost there. Owls too. Wondering if these fallen branches were carrying bird mites? That got carried in into the house on shoes.
            So many variables here. I read that bird mite DO and DO NOT live on humans. But once there normal boast the bird is gone, they can go for what’s next or nearest.
            Too crazy to figure out.
            She doesn’t have a computer, so I’m trying to do research for her. She just got her I phone fixed, so will start sending me pics of her bites and what ever else is big enough to be seen by camera lenlens.
            Take care got to go sleep.
            I’ve been up researching all nite AGAIN!
            If u any question, I’ll answers what I can.

        Reply
        • There seem to be different bugs involved but for sure there are some bugs which go for the neck at the base of the hairline. I think they are embedding themselves or their eggs or larvae into the skin. I am not sure if they are the same ones going for my scalp. A week ago my scalp was attacked by what appear to be phorid flies. I have never had so many attack me at once, I was frightened! It took me days to get them off with various poisons. I have to find a way to keep these things away from me or I will go mad. I am trying a complete diet change now.

      • Jacquelyn S,
        When I read what you had to say actually brought tears to my eyes because that is exactly 100% that is happening to me and the way my family is treating me. My family treats me like I’m a walking disease and have nothing to do with me. They all think I’m taking drugs and to top it off the dermatologist I went to see told my sister it’s all my imagination and that I am psychotic so now my mom is pushing me and my daughter out of her house because they all think I’m crazy. I wish somebody would find out exactly what’s going on because the crawling in my skin these sores on my body the accusations of taking taking drugs everything my mind is going crazy. I can’t sleep I can’t function because it just drives me nuts I hate to go in public because I look absolutely gross. If there’s anybody out there that understands or knows what it is that we have and that can in any possible way help us it would be a godsend because not having our family or having her friends or having our own life in any kind of normal setting it causes anyone to think many different things. We’ve done nothing to deserve this we didn’t do it or caused it and if they’re anything like me were very clean people and we were just minding our own business and somebody gave it to us we just need to know what it is and how to get rid of it so we can have our lives back together. I have a child and I feel so bad for my kids because she gets treated so bad for my family she sees what’s in my skin and important she can help me but she’s trying to just control me. Please anyone if there’s anything you know that cause this and how to get rid of it please help us!

          Your body infestation is caused by collumbolla aka springtails….they appear in swarms on window sills, garages, sinks, bathtubs, soil. They burrow under human skin then began to morph. If left untouched the infestation /condition advances to morgellons diseases (mound shaped bumps and skin fibers). can explain more and tell you how to eliminate the nIghtmare.

        • It’s very sad to have something as this happening, but to be a parent or worse SINGLE PARENT dealing with being eating alive by something you can’t explain is HORRIBLE! My name is April, I am 43yrs old I am a single mom of a 19yr old freshman at University of Mississippi, a 7yr old and a 2yr old. I have had this HORRIBLE whatever you want to call it since April 8th last year! Yes, I remember the morning I felt something in my hair. We live in north Mississippi and my oldest son was having a camp out the night before. That Sunday morning I called my son into the house and in my master bathroom to tell him something was in my hair. He just seemed to have better things to do than listen to me having a bug in my hair! It’s been almost a year now and if I were to write ALL I’ve been through, ALL my two youngest sons have endured this entire post would freak! I have shaved my head over and over…..my hair was beautiful my entire life not oily or dry beautiful curls until that April 8th. This parasite which since finding this site I’m certain it is a parasite now has taken EVERYTHING from me. My hair, my eye sight my teeth I’m continuing to get sicker and sicker! It’s almost to the point I feel if I have to live as I am secluded to my home NEVER leaving unless VERY important like a appointment whatever I feel I’d rather be dead if have to live being eating alive all day all night and becoming sicker than ever before not to mention not being able to even look at myself in a mirror…….it’s unbelievable I don’t look ANYTHING like myself I look as if I’m dead already! I’m scared very scared, my little boys are scared they have seen the black speck round bugs actually come out of my scalp! My middle son is my ONLY witness. He has seen EVERYTHING and knows mama isn’t crazy, but it’s driving me to craziness that’s for certain. I want our lives back, it’s not fair to any of us. The bubbly out going woman I used to be is now very UN socialable NEVER wanting to leave my house and being a parent just seems to get harder and harder too. This itching and trying to relieve the consist itching and biting which leaves huge bite holes is killing me! Takes too much time away from my boy’s, my life! Someone anyone please please help us! Oh, forgot to mention…..I have acquired over $20k in medical bills going to different doctors and hospitals…….
          It’s horrible all I am is crazy to all of them, but they sure want their money! Lol I’m still praying God himself I feel all I’ve had and will get us through this one day!

          • Dear April,

            I know exactly what you are going through! I am also a single parent of two boys, teenage years and the younger one and my family think I am nuts too. The older one is finally believing me and I have bought a wig, as I too plan to shave my head. Although, I have gotten much better, I am still with symptoms. I even went to the doc. recently for a routine prescription, and he asked “do I have pain in my ears”?, I said why, he said don’t freak, but It looks like you might have a “little bug” something in there! I said I lived in a duplex where I got something on me from a contaminated water pipe. They did an ear lavage with a machine, but guess what, Its still there because I can hear it. It was the assistant whom did the lavage and got a small amount of wax out. I am disguisted! If I say, I hear something in there, OF COURSE They will think I am nuts. So at least I have a crediable witness, though the doc. walked out of the room thinking this would be taken care of. I will have to phone again and be very careful in what I say. Keep your chin up, I am routing for you too! Amy

            I have a few posts regarding parasites and products. Susan says:

            I too had parasites entering through the skin and could feel walking or crawling. I am not parasite free, but on the way to a balance after 8 months of due diligence.
            The healing is in herbs and cleaning up the diet by removing all flour, grains, dairy, and fatty oils like sunflower, canola etc. The oils to use are coconut, avocado, olive oil, etc. I use digestive enzymes and other nutrients to supplement healing of the intestinal track, stomach, lungs, heart, etc.
            Parasites love bodies that are out of balance with little or no stomach acids. Parasites make thousands of holes in the intestines and make a home with many of the invaders.
            I still have a few fungal black dots erupting on the head as well as parasite varieties. Every day is a a day closer to healing. In the beginning I thought there was little I could do. Diet, vitamins, and Dr. Clark herbs really helped.
            I have itching in my feet and often other areas on the body. The parasites are active at night and love to move around. Remember the parasites have to travel through the blood, kidneys and liver before elimination. Since there are 2,000 ducts in the liver, there are probably more than one parasite. As I said, I visibly see parasites and would not wish this on anyone.
            It is not necessary to know the name of the parasites to begin the process. Dr. Clark has videos online YouTube as well as talks. Dr. Gittleman, PhD, CNS http://annlouise.com/2016/04/13/parasites-101/ is excellent.
            So, be encouraged as others have walk through the parasite issues. Stay connected. Susan

          • how can i rid them of lving in my body and coming out by the thousands. Ten years of this horror. I need serious help to get them out of me. Any good advice please help/ Going 4tnsane literally!

        • Hi Donna, I know your post is a year old, and hope you’ve figured out how to get rid of these
          Hell mites. But if not, I just found a book while doing research on these bugs.
          Name of book is
          THE YEAR OF THE MITE. I don’t recall the authors name, but I found mention of this book with a link to it, so clicked on the link.
          It was to amazon.
          Anyway after reading the little blurb, I thought I’d order it.
          Its a true story about a woman ( the author) and her daughter that came down with these mites.
          For her, it started after getting some chickens for her daughter for 4 H club!
          Its written so well, and has valuable info in it.
          She did eventually get ridvof these critters. It took a lotvof diff steps and time and moving from her home. She also found a Dr that actually studies mites. His name if DR Olivier SPARANGO. ( think
          I spelled it right).
          In the book or an article he wrote ( sorry I’ve read so many things I can’t recall which it was)
          He states that these bird mites have and DO live and reproduce on HUMANS!
          His info is current and from his and other collaborating professors studies.
          He is not simply quoting from 1930s medical and farming journals on out dated info!
          Anyway, the book…. If you can get your doctor to read it (right lol) that would help, but if nothing else get your families to read it!
          Her spouse thought she was crazy,even tho she SAW the mites and was also bitten.
          I felt really validated after reading this book.
          I felt like she was a friend or someone I’d met or knew.
          Really well written with medical info that was easy too grasp.
          I don’t know the author and am not being compensated for mentioning this book.
          I just found it to be filled with solid info on a topic that has so much conflict surrounding it.
          Take care everyone.

      • Jacquelyn S,
        When I read what you had to say actually brought tears to my eyes because that is exactly 100% that is happening to me and the way my family is treating me. My family treats me like I’m a walking disease and have nothing to do with me. They all think I’m taking drugs and to top it off the dermatologist I went to see told my sister it’s all my imagination and that I am psychotic so now my mom is pushing me and my daughter out of her house because they all think I’m crazy. I wish somebody would find out exactly what’s going on because the crawling in my skin these sores on my body the accusations of taking taking drugs everything my mind is going crazy. I can’t sleep I can’t function because it just drives me nuts I hate to go in public because I look absolutely gross. If there’s anybody out there that understands or knows what it is that we have and that can in any possible way help us it would be a godsend because not having our family or having her friends or having our own life in any kind of normal setting it causes anyone to think many different things. We’ve done nothing to deserve this we didn’t do it or caused it and if they’re anything like me were very clean people and we were just minding our own business and somebody gave it to us we just need to know what it is and how to get rid of it so we can have our lives back together. I have a child and I feel so bad for my kids because she gets treated so bad for my family she sees what’s in my skin and important she can help me but she’s trying to just control me. Please anyone if there’s anything you know that cause this and how to get rid of it please help us!

          Your body infestation is caused by collumbolla aka springtails….they appear in swarms on window sills, garages, sinks, bathtubs, soil. They burrow under human skin then began to morph. If left untouched the infestation /condition advances to morgellons diseases (mound shaped bumps and skin fibers). can explain more and tell you how to eliminate the nIghtmare.

          Let’s narrow this down:
          1) is it in NEW textiles?
          2) or NOT?

          VERY IMPORTANT query (sorry for using capitals)

        • It’s very sad to have something as this happening, but to be a parent or worse SINGLE PARENT dealing with being eating alive by something you can’t explain is HORRIBLE! My name is April, I am 43yrs old I am a single mom of a 19yr old freshman at University of Mississippi, a 7yr old and a 2yr old. I have had this HORRIBLE whatever you want to call it since April 8th last year! Yes, I remember the morning I felt something in my hair. We live in north Mississippi and my oldest son was having a camp out the night before. That Sunday morning I called my son into the house and in my master bathroom to tell him something was in my hair. He just seemed to have better things to do than listen to me having a bug in my hair! It’s been almost a year now and if I were to write ALL I’ve been through, ALL my two youngest sons have endured this entire post would freak! I have shaved my head over and over…..my hair was beautiful my entire life not oily or dry beautiful curls until that April 8th. This parasite which since finding this site I’m certain it is a parasite now has taken EVERYTHING from me. My hair, my eye sight my teeth I’m continuing to get sicker and sicker! It’s almost to the point I feel if I have to live as I am secluded to my home NEVER leaving unless VERY important like a appointment whatever I feel I’d rather be dead if have to live being eating alive all day all night and becoming sicker than ever before not to mention not being able to even look at myself in a mirror…….it’s unbelievable I don’t look ANYTHING like myself I look as if I’m dead already! I’m scared very scared, my little boys are scared they have seen the black speck round bugs actually come out of my scalp! My middle son is my ONLY witness. He has seen EVERYTHING and knows mama isn’t crazy, but it’s driving me to craziness that’s for certain. I want our lives back, it’s not fair to any of us. The bubbly out going woman I used to be is now very UN socialable NEVER wanting to leave my house and being a parent just seems to get harder and harder too. This itching and trying to relieve the consist itching and biting which leaves huge bite holes is killing me! Takes too much time away from my boy’s, my life! Someone anyone please please help us! Oh, forgot to mention…..I have acquired over $20k in medical bills going to different doctors and hospitals…….
          It’s horrible all I am is crazy to all of them, but they sure want their money! Lol I’m still praying God himself I feel all I’ve had and will get us through this one day!

          • Dear April,

            I know exactly what you are going through! I am also a single parent of two boys, teenage years and the younger one and my family think I am nuts too. The older one is finally believing me and I have bought a wig, as I too plan to shave my head. Although, I have gotten much better, I am still with symptoms. I even went to the doc. recently for a routine prescription, and he asked “do I have pain in my ears”?, I said why, he said don’t freak, but It looks like you might have a “little bug” something in there! I said I lived in a duplex where I got something on me from a contaminated water pipe. They did an ear lavage with a machine, but guess what, Its still there because I can hear it. It was the assistant whom did the lavage and got a small amount of wax out. I am disguisted! If I say, I hear something in there, OF COURSE They will think I am nuts. So at least I have a crediable witness, though the doc. walked out of the room thinking this would be taken care of. I will have to phone again and be very careful in what I say. Keep your chin up, I am routing for you too! Amy

      • I’ve been going through the exact thing… Going berserk. Went to a Kaiser dermatologist in Thousand Oaks, who wanted to put me on meds for schizophrenia!!! Sleazy guy he was… Mine started with feeling the worst fatigue ever on the day I needed to be productive. ER visit followed when white scabies looking things were coming out of my fingernails by tens of thousands, and the pain was unbearable. Is there anyone else close to Ventura or San Fernando valley area who can help direct me to a doctor who helps? Please…my dog has it, my three year old has it, but they are not affected like I am. Thank god. I need help so bad, and like others, am isolated and regarded to be in declining mental health. I wish that was so, it would be easy. Strange strange things are these parasites, and sometimes it does feel otherworldly… Please talk to me someone!? 805 665 8817

          I immediately hit the tub for a “Dawn bath.” Dawn ROCKS on Head Lice, unsure about Scabies, but I used it another time he had gotten Scabies and my other son and I stayed bug free.
          This time it was different. I am in the tub with Dawn. I noticed black “specks” in the water while tub was draining. Looked like pepper at first. I use a pepper grinder so not unusual, until 3 little bastards BORE INTO MY BODY. Oh HELL NO! I freaked. I knew it wasn’t Scabies, again you can’t see them. But had no clue WHAT I had. I started a half ass research. After I noticed black specks on my skin, I went to the ER.

          The hospital in this town has killed family members, and permanently damaged a friend who had general anesthesia. I had a Endoscopy in November and I refused general. They are idiots. My Dr is one County away with a Hospital I trust. It was Christmas Eve so my Drs office was closed. I went to the local Hospital (again Christmas Eve. Didn’t feel like driving that far) and there she was…Nurse Know It All. She is a DR wannabe, and for some strange reason the DRS LISTEN TO HER…

          She doesn’t like me, feeling is mutual, and I knew if I didn’t get a decent Dr I was screwed. I got SCREWED. I have a few Mental Health issues (slight depression/anxiety and Intermittent Explosive Disorder. IED. I was misdiagnosed by another local idiot as Bipolar & Borderline Personality Disorder. I didn’t have the last two, but apparently the hospital doesn’t update as I was tested and only had the first three diagnosis.

          The DR starts by asking me if I was taking my Mental Health medications correctly. Oh SHIT, here we go…I said “Um, I do NOT take the Lamictal for Bipolar, one of the side effects is a Antidepressant. It works as one for me.”
          Sure, sure the DR mumbles in such a condescending way I wanted to choke her. THAT would be the IED.
          Long story short, they tried to get me to agree to a Christmas spent in the Psych Ward.
          No thank you IDIOT. Was a bit tense but finally let me go. With the notation in my chart I was bat shit crazy, and seeing bugs that weren’t there because my son has Scabies.
          Jesus on a bike!
          I came home and started to research. It took a couple of hours, but I found it.
          BODY LICE…
          I tend to get “rare” diseases. This isn’t really rare, but it IS overlooked by Drs.
          The reason being it is usually only seen in homeless people or where disasters have happened. Every site says the same thing about where it is seen. Unlike Head Lice, which prefers CLEAN hair, BODY LICE like dirty people. I think THAT reason is WHY so many of you are being misdiagnosed.
          The sites pretty much all say if you shower WEEKLY and can change clothes WEEKLY? You should be able to get rid of it just by that…
          Okay…Um, I shower daily (reason I didn’t see any black specks. I also change my clothes daily. So why the fuck did I get this shit, and HOW???
          I think I have it figured out, for me anyways.
          I NEVER ITCHED. Yet it is one of the major signs. (I always have to be different)
          Besides being a unhygienic homeless person is a lot of dirty laundry laying around.
          My dryer broke. I was washing clothes at home and taking them to the laundry mat to dry. Same time my dryer died, we had one of my sons friends stay with us. He had been living in a car or wherever he could. He brought his clothes in and they were filthy and smelled HORRIBLE. He didn’t shower for a couple of days, then put more dirty clothes on. I was “oh HELL NO.” And took him and his nasty ass clothes to the laundry mat. I was sorting them, and then gathered them up, AGAINST MY CHEST to put in washer.
          He stayed about a month. I started seeing the specks in my tub around the time he left.

          He was the INCUBATOR! The only rash, bumps, etc. Were on my chest. His laundry.
          It has spread now, or my routine to destroy them has brought them out of hiding. I have freckles on my arms. They were blending in. A point I tried to get the idiot Dr to see. “Just FRECKLES.” Seriously? How often are FRECKLES lined up? With BURROWS between them?

          I am so sorry so many of you have been misdiagnosed, told it “was in your head” and everything else you have had to suffer. It’s total BULLSHIT that a SPECIALIST, DERMATOLOGIST, AND A GENERAL PRACTITIONER MISSED THE FUCKING CORRECT DIAGNOSIS!!!
          The only reason I can possibly consider is that no one was homeless, or was wearing filthy clothes. I know that’s how I got them. They are easily spread. They lay their eggs in clothing, bedding, and I found some on the couch he had been sleeping on. Unlike Head Lice, the eggs are easy to see. About the size of rice, white with a yellow tint.
          Yes, I had clothes on my floor. Youngest puts clean clothes he is to lazy to put away back in the hamper. Folded and sometimes still on the hanger(?) Sheesh! I buy a 100 load bottle of laundry detergent a month.
          Not anymore. Systematically throwing away what I know he didn’t wear.

          These bastards spread easily. I grabbed something to wear off the dryer with long sleeves to wear at laundry mat to wash and dry clothes in commercial washers and dryers. When I came home I jumped in the tub and had new activity on both arms (very few before) and of course my chest.

          I can’t tell you what will work for you. But hopefully by looking up BODY LICE, you will at least be able to tell your Doctor’s they fucked up.

      • So, from what I have read this far, this isn’t actually an insect identification thread, it’s a Morgellons thread. That’s misleading. You all have Morgellons so why wouldn’t you just call it “Morgellons group” or something, anything that actually tells people what the thread actually is? Oh, you all should ask your doctors for a psychologist referral. They’ll get all of your “infestations” cinder control better than any other fox can.

    • I TOO have this same thing. It really looks alot like scabies, but my wife and kids dont have it. I have been taking ivermec orally and rubbing the animal paste on my skin. It runs them out and kills them pretty good, but they havent stopped coming out and its day 18. Ive long suffered exhaustion, very excessive sweating, impotence, at times, red sunburn rash,, brain fog etc etc. I saw one and having already had RA and Lyme disease, I knew that dr’s wouldnt be of any help. My flesh is torn to hell from them exiting. Theyve come out my eyes, ears, nose, nails, mouth and tongue, and pretty much anywhere else you can think of. I would love to have some answers. And yes it is painful wen those around you question your sanity. I will keep check on this site for future posts. Thank you allf for sharing. It gives me at least some sort of validation.

      • Wes, Try the above regimen written by Bugman with the baking soda, Dawn soap, and apple cider vinegar. I also used in conjunction with that, Kleen Green enzyme cleaner and Wondercide cider oil spray. I wished I knew of this earlier, I had been suffering for almost 1 year with this. I am finally getting relief and they are almost completely gone. Please keep me updated.

        Thank you I hope you get better soon.

        • I cannot say this is almost completely gone yet, but I can say it has less in what I had before. I still have to keep doing this same regimen that Bugman stated along with the enzyme cleaner and cedar spray. I would like anything else different from that to help. I still don’t feel as good as I did before catching this horrible parasite(s), but I am better than I was after these above regimens.

      • Hi , I,m sorry to hear that you are suffering so much you are not going off your trolley as no doubt you have been told by the medical profession that these parasites are delusional . Let me tell you you are far from delusional .I have had the same problem my self so as I am not getting the help from the doctors as you should be i have been investigating the situation my self and have found many other suffers with the same symptoms so we all cant be wrong. The symptoms start with a bit or sting raised skin excessive itching and from a pin prick lesion it develops into a round hole that you feel is a thorn and you can feel burrowing in your skin . if you try and dig it out you get profuse bleeding . fortunately i have managed to retrieve some of the critters . they look like a tiny black dot or seed and they do come out from under your skin . I have been putting a strong disinfectant Dr Johnson’s antiseptic in the bath and an antifungal white cream named Mycota which is normally used for antifungal foot infection . After you have bathed leave your skin wet and rub the white mycota all over your body and then wait and within a short time get ready with plenty of cotton wool to wipe off over wounds and rest of body get a magnifying glass to see those black dot parasites come out of your skin and on to the cotton wool .You will have to repeat this process many times but gradually you will see them deplete so don’t give up not a pleasant job but a vital one . I have also read that going on a sun bed help one person i will also be trying that myself . I have got not rid of those horrible parasites yet but there has been a huge improvement so i hope this helps you

        • I had this situation with theses terrible bugs too. Mostly in the area of my arms, wrist to elbows. After much experimentation, I found that hair drying the skin on heat to the point that your skin gets hot, but not burnt, then following that up with rubbing alcohol. Sounds crazy, but it has finally worked for me. I started seeing those black elongated bugs after hair drying, and killing them with the alcohol. Hope this helps anyone suffering. You have to do it many times, but you should see improvement

          • Just to add to my comments above: believe I picked this up while traveling through China, and it seemed to have gone through different stages. First it was like a bunch of bad mosquito bites. Then on the back of my hands, I think was a larva infestation, and then sores all up and down my arms that wouldn’t heal. I started to notice microscopic elongated bugs on my skin, under my arm hairs. My sympathies to all who are going through the same thing. I looked like a drug user, and I desperately tried to hide my arms, even wearing long sleeves in the summer time which made it worse. My family thought I was crazy. Again, it sounds crazy, but try hair drying the infected area and then following this up with rubbing alcohol. Repeat many times. It has worked for me, thank goodness. After 3 years of this, it’s a huge relief. I wish I came across this site sooner. Hope this helps someone suffering this.

          • Hey john.
            I’m just now seeing ur post about the hair dryer and rubbing alcohol.
            HOW INTERSTING !!
            Is it still working for you?
            Are you mite free?
            Yes it seems both your cabin and your trip to china may have been your exposure to these mites.
            Have you ever gone back out to your cabin AFTER you cleared this mite infestation ?
            It sound lovely.
            Lots of birds and mice and other critters that carry all sorts of skin parasites.
            Write back
            I’m super curious if your still doing good.
            I hope so!
            Maybe something that simple will work. Especially if it’s just mites and no fungus. The fact you can force them out of your skin on command
            Practically is shocking !!
            So glad u posted this info.

      • Please look up Mites,
        Domestic Starling Mite – Bird Mite( bird lice)
        Ornithonyssus Sylviarum -Northern Fowl Mite
        Ornithonyssus Bacoti – Tropical Rat Mite
        Ornithonyssus Bursa
        If it is a dark or black colour, it maybe O. Sylviarum,O. Bursa or O. Bacoti. Most homes are getting these from house pets and out doors, sinks, sidings.
        Please use White Vinegar 5% Acetic Acid applied directly on bites, last for days also heals the bites faster and prevents bacterial/fungal confections Good blessings to you and your family

    • Hello, we are from Australia and have nada problem with a parasite that has I fested our skin. We started out with tiny black pepper like things biting use high have. Even eliminated but what we have been left with are very hard to see invisable tiny winged long legged parasites which are still laying in our skin. We have thousands a tiny larvae coming out of our skin daily with the help of alcohol rubs. We also salt bath every day as well. Has anyone else had this problem or any success at ridding them?

        • Hi Elizabeth
          I live in Townsville Queensland. We moved into a rental property after living down south of Sydney for 4 years. Within 3 months we were being eaten alive in this house. Our pets were scratching and we were being bitten in bed. We had the pest control 3 times and they sprayed pemethrin through the ceiling and fogged the house. Didnt work. My husband ended up buying a termite spray from bunnings and hitting them hard with it. We moved into motel after motel to get some peace. Cost us dearly. Doctors and dermatologists called it dermatitis which is untrue as I am studying to be a Naturopath and I know what different skin diseases look like. One said we had scabies which I also knew we didnt have. We ended up calling a Veterinarian friend of ours as our animals were suffering and nothing we treated them with worked. He sent samples out to James Cook University to the parasitologist and he said “mesostigmata mite family” He wasn’t more specific as he was doing it as a favour for the vet. The vet treated the animals and they came good straight away but there was no equivalent solution for us. We ended up throwing away everything that was fabric….mattresses, mats, linen, clothing, couches, chairs, lamps …anything they could breed in. We moved out of the house and took the real estate to court and won. We moved into a new premises and sat on camp chairs in front of the tv for awhile. We didnt want to buy anything new until we had completely rid outselves of them. We are Christians and it has only been our faith in Him that has kept us rational and in good spirits. We felt to start bathing daily in a tub of salt water with malt vinegar and straight away, they were dead in the bottom of the tub everywhere. Tea tree solution is applied to open sores or to the skin after…they hate it! We mop the floors with kero mixed hot water with a little detergent and mix that into a spray bottle and do the floors and seats of our cars. There is a low odour kero that bunnings sell. It takes time to get rid of them but you can do it. Every day you MUST attend to the house and yourselves. When we bought new mattresses, we left the plastic on them and we run the kero mop over the top and sides of the plastic. Even after vaccuming, we run either the steam mop over the carpets or a kero mop after wringing out. After showering we mop the shower floors down with kero mix. We are 90% out of the woods but it has been a journey and now we are helping others in the community to do the same. Through our little natural health business, we have many coming to us with the same problems and doctors don’t know what it is. They come to me for dermatitis or rosacea or eczema, and in some cases, it is just that, but in other cases, I ask them to describe the feelings and then I know immediately. Even had people whom had been sent to psychologists because doctors thought it was all in the head. Its not! Its a very real MITE problem! The mix we use in the bathtub which costs very little…..first of all, get a broom and scrub the tub with demestos before and after each person bathing. Fill tub to 1/2and add 2 cups of pool salt (cheap at around $5-$6 a bag) and 1 cup of malt vineager (cheap at Woolies around 90c) Dont shower after, leave on the skin. If itching, put the water soluable tea tree on your skin straight (about $7 at woolies) or you can put Aquim hand sanitizer on as well but I like the tea tree better as it seems to kill them more efficiently. Maybe keep a small bottle of hand sanitizer in your bag for when your out and irritiated. You MUST clean your home out and rid old stuff…not worth the worry of these things staying or returning. Dump time. And then clean clean clean……..Hope this helps. Everytime you buy fabrics of any sort in future, straight into the washing machine.
          Hope this helps

            I wash in salt and white vinegar or tea tree. 1 cup of salt per medium load. And I wash the sheets and towels and clothes we wear every single day. Dont use the same towel twice and get the dirty stuff out into the laundry. Dont let it sit.
            Spray out your laundry baskets too.

          • Sharon,
            See that diggers low odour kerosene? Well a scientist from Precious Organics named Jeremy put me onto that and it cleared my eczema fungus condition by 80 percent. It’s funny how it works. He is from Booragoon Western Australia. I was also bitten in the scalp by a monkey in Bali and something manifested in my scalp for ten years and the only thing that killed it was kero.

          • May you please beware of throwing out items.

            1) the infestation can spread
            2) you may regretfully throw out live saving CLEAN items.

            I did just that….. All new shop bought textiles are infested…. So hang on to the old stuff!

            I am sorry to point that out. Your issue could be very different from mine. But I know all new textiles are infested. So by that reasoning, the old stuff is worth protecting.

            I live alone so I am unlucky in one sense, but equally am more able to manage my environment.

            Can I ask….. Why endlessly clean up anyway? There’s more chance of just spreading the infection let’s say ….EPs since nobody really is sure how to kill “it” either….. To be sure, I would test each chemical in a very small tub and place a sock in each etc….. Then decide from there which product to “clean” with.

            I personally find DE to be a very cheap control method.

            All the best

        • Hi Elizabeth
          I live in Townsville Queensland. We moved into a rental property after living down south of Sydney for 4 years. Within 3 months we were being eaten alive in this house. Our pets were scratching and we were being bitten in bed. We had the pest control 3 times and they sprayed pemethrin through the ceiling and fogged the house. Didnt work. My husband ended up buying a termite spray from bunnings and hitting them hard with it. We moved into motel after motel to get some peace. Cost us dearly. Doctors and dermatologists called it dermatitis which is untrue as I am studying to be a Naturopath and I know what different skin diseases look like. One said we had scabies which I also knew we didnt have. We ended up calling a Veterinarian friend of ours as our animals were suffering and nothing we treated them with worked. He sent samples out to James Cook University to the parasitologist and he said “mesostigmata mite family” He wasn’t more specific as he was doing it as a favour for the vet. The vet treated the animals and they came good straight away but there was no equivalent solution for us. We ended up throwing away everything that was fabric….mattresses, mats, linen, clothing, couches, chairs, lamps …anything they could breed in. We moved out of the house and took the real estate to court and won. We moved into a new premises and sat on camp chairs in front of the tv for awhile. We didnt want to buy anything new until we had completely rid outselves of them. We are Christians and it has only been our faith in Him that has kept us rational and in good spirits. We felt to start bathing daily in a tub of salt water with malt vinegar and straight away, they were dead in the bottom of the tub everywhere. Tea tree solution is applied to open sores or to the skin after…they hate it! We mop the floors with kero mixed hot water with a little detergent and mix that into a spray bottle and do the floors and seats of our cars. There is a low odour kero that bunnings sell. It takes time to get rid of them but you can do it. Every day you MUST attend to the house and yourselves. When we bought new mattresses, we left the plastic on them and we run the kero mop over the top and sides of the plastic. Even after vaccuming, we run either the steam mop over the carpets or a kero mop after wringing out. After showering we mop the shower floors down with kero mix. We are 90% out of the woods but it has been a journey and now we are helping others in the community to do the same. Through our little natural health business, we have many coming to us with the same problems and doctors don’t know what it is. They come to me for dermatitis or rosacea or eczema, and in some cases, it is just that, but in other cases, I ask them to describe the feelings and then I know immediately. Even had people whom had been sent to psychologists because doctors thought it was all in the head. Its not! Its a very real MITE problem! The mix we use in the bathtub which costs very little…..first of all, get a broom and scrub the tub with demestos before and after each person bathing. Fill tub to 1/2and add 2 cups of pool salt (cheap at around $5-$6 a bag) and 1 cup of malt vineager (cheap at Woolies around 90c) Dont shower after, leave on the skin. If itching, put the water soluable tea tree on your skin straight (about $7 at woolies) or you can put Aquim hand sanitizer on as well but I like the tea tree better as it seems to kill them more efficiently. Maybe keep a small bottle of hand sanitizer in your bag for when your out and irritiated. You MUST clean your home out and rid old stuff…not worth the worry of these things staying or returning. Dump time. And then clean clean clean……..Hope this helps. Everytime you buy fabrics of any sort in future, straight into the washing machine.
          Hope this helps

          • And Elizabeth
            I wash in salt and white vinegar or tea tree. 1 cup of salt per medium load. And I wash the sheets and towels and clothes we wear every single day. Dont use the same towel twice and get the dirty stuff out into the laundry. Dont let it sit.
            Spray out your laundry baskets too.
            Sharon

          • Sharon,
            See that diggers low odour kerosene? Well a scientist from Precious Organics named Jeremy put me onto that and it cleared my eczema fungus condition by 80 percent. It’s funny how it works. He is from Booragoon Western Australia. I was also bitten in the scalp by a monkey in Bali and something manifested in my scalp for ten years and the only thing that killed it was kero. I was using the normal one with the blue dye in it, before Jeremy put me onto the low odour clear one. If it can kill that thing I had it can kill yours too! I was ingesting 1 teaspoon a day in cordial or juice, and moved up to a tablespoon for over six months! The lady said that my blood would have tasted funny to mosquitos and she was right! There’s the answer to your prayers! my testimony is on his website. If I got those then I know Diggers works. You’re already half way there by cleaning with kero. Keep in touch,

        Your body infestation is caused by collumbolla aka springtails….they appear in swarms on window sills, garages, sinks, bathtubs, soil. They burrow under human skin then began to morph.

    • Hi I have read your comments and descriptions of the bug and indeed it fits the same pattern and description looks like a micro dot and also a caraway seed as you described There’s not much help from medical professional have done some investigation my self out of sheer desperation to get rid of them > I have found an antiseptic disinfectant Dr Johnson anti bacterial > I put this in the bath and when i come out I rub a white antifungal cream called Mycota . wait a while and you will see all black dot like creatures come out of your skin not a pretty sight . Get a load of cotton wool ready to wipe the critters off . I suspect that there will be loads so keep repeating the process . I haven’t totally got rid of them yet but there has been a huge improvement I have caught some of the parasites and am giving them to my doctor but not holding my breath as there appears to be no urgency or appreciation of what these destructive parasites are causing huge distress and uncomfortable itching bleeding and unsightly lesions but don’t give up in trying to identify these bugs . some else mentioned that they have tried sun bed which also helped i will be trying that my self also. hope this helps i’m not rid of them yet but there’s a huge improvement.

    • Hello I’m from a little village in Alaska.
      I had a vary similar story. Back in 2007 at the Yukon kuskokwim correctional center, P.O. box 400 Bethel Alaska 99501. While I was doing time I noticed a patch like rash on my leg, little bigger then a quarter that was itchy. by the time I showed the doctor it was gone? It moved to my chest area. I noticed this rash spreading but would come and go, and was vary itchy! I got out of jail and spent time with my girlfriend at home. 3 or 4 months later she started getting little red dot like bumps around her underarm area. Mine were worse, I started getting these permanent pimple like bumps scattered along both my arms and hundreds of little red bumps all over my body.We noticed when we were in bed they seem to appear, or when I hot or sweating. 6 months passes since I left the jail and this rash was all over my body and was vary itchy when they appeared, it would disappear the same hour or two later.
      I went to the hospital and got seen.The only thing I was able to show them were the pimple like bumps on my arms. I might of had 5 on my left and 7 on my right. I explained I might have scabies. I would break out with a lot of red dots across my chest, under arms, arms and sometimes on my lower body. I made sure he knew how irritated and itchy my body would be.
      the doctor said he can’t see anything that was related to scabies. He brushed me off and said I had somekind of allergic reaction to soap, water, allergies, weather. I keep at him and explained my skin is vary sensitive and I would like the treatment for scabies. so I got the ointment. I read the label, it said it might be irritable to the skin. I had to keep this stuff on for 6 hours, more or less. At that time my finger nails were a bit long, so I applied the ointment on. An hour or two later I happened to look at my hands and noticed my nails were all black. I thought nothing of it because I work on motors and engines, so I cleaned my nails and started applying the scabie cream rubbing it everywhere. As I applied the ointment on and around my body I looked at my hands again and seen my nails were all black again. I freaked out and thought of what would cause this? I started to noticed these faint sharp peircing pain all around my body from head to toe. I looked at where this faint pain was coming from and noticed a little dot like pepper sized things appeared. I grossed out so bad because I realized this is what made my nails black. I decided to collect the scabies in a gram sized zip lock baggie
      I started to realize there were more then one type, one was pure white and soft would smash if touched. the other was small as a grain of salt sometimes looked bright and silver or white. the most common was the peppered color different sizes, some pod like, some pepper like more of the black ones coming out of my body. My uncle happened to stop by I told him I got scabies and happened to find one of the pod like ones they seem to be bigger than the rest, I scooped it up with my nail and we had a good 5 seconds to see it. He started to talk before he said anything I felt the same pain right on the finger tip I looked and saw the pod like one with the pointed end shoot some long spike in between my nail and flesh we both freaked out! I was like what the f? this thing had no legs or didn’t even look like a bug, but shot a harpoon with the narrow end straight down and like it used this thing to pull it self in between my nail and flesh fast too.We were still able to see it in my flesh through the nail went a good two of its own body lengths!
      I collected a lot. hundreds were coming out of my body.
      I went to the hospital and told them I was right, look here are the scabies. but the doctor said you can’t even see scabies! They said they are particles of dirt or salt in or on my skin.
      I didn’t know what to do so I asked if the bethel hospital would look in to this? I made an appointment and brought the gram like zip lock baggie with me.
      when I explained what was going on the doctor told me he looked at my samples and said they might have been particles of dirt trapped under or on the skin said the samething the last doctor said. I asked what about the other ones he said a lot of those look like salt. the doctor didn’t want to even look any closer and tried to brush me off and let me go. I insisted to prove to her there is something in my body or skin. I asked for 2 more ointments one for me and one for my girlfriend. That night we applied it on both of us. Same story she had it I only collected the ones on her same everything. pepper like black ones also the pod like ones had a pointed end. the cream must be killing them because they were coming out. In the morning 1 doctor looked at me, 1 was seeing her. Right away my doctor said the same thing, particles of dirt and salt, I was like how the hell is a grain of salt going to come out of my body? she said the ointment can irritate my skin and cause a chemical reaction. Then she told me to wait until 2pm she didn’t tell me why? so I went to my girlfriend her doctor was doing more skin samples and looked like she believed us she brought the skin samples she took and looked at it in a microscope and almost screamed saying it looked like it moved? Then my doctor came and the other doctor said to her “for a bit it did look like it was moving”. my doctor said no I don’t see nothing? so she looked again and said again I thought I seen it moved? My doctor explained to the other doctor that a specialist is coming to see me.
      Then they went and talked elsewhere. We waited until the specialist came.
      I was called in to a room and didn’t realize the specialist was a psychiatrist.
      he started off asking if I wanted an evaluation. I asked for what? He said my doctor thought you might have a bi-phobia for bugs? He asked if I want to stay at a mental hospital. I said I would talk and even show him what I’m going through, as he was try to convince me I felt the same pain and looked in to his eyes and said what do you think this is? He looked at me I glanced at my arm and showed him look can you see this? He looked and said that little speck of black? I said I can feel these things coming out of my body you see it right? He said yes, I said again look I felt that one coming out of me. I felt it again in a second and showed him do you see that? He said yes. I said I don’t care about bugs or a mental hospital. If you wanna think I’m crazy, he cut me off and said these doctors ask me to see you! I ask what are these things? He started reading the doctors notes.and repeated particles of dirt and salt coming out of hair follicles or skin poors. I ask if he believes that? He didn’t say nothing . I ended walking out and left.
      Not to long later I violated probation went to D Dorm I told my story to a few friends I had. I looked into the over head light and saw so many tiny beetles I counted 60 in one light that was about 4 feet long, 70 MORE in the next light. I told everyone I caught some kind of infestation and look how much of these bugs are here? everyone tried to ask for cleaning supplies. Everyone sprayed down there bunks. that night this guy came running in my room he was really excited he said look look, he pointed at he’s arm and said do you see it? we were a little to far and said no.He walked up to us and there was one of them little beetles with its head in his skin. He slapped it nothing happened, then he tried to brush it off still this thing stuck to his arm. So he started trying to fling it off. my roommate got so mad and yelled at him saying “don’t be flinging that in here. but anyway we tried to find a live one for the doctor to send to a lab but couldn’t find one. We smashed a clear one, couldn’t even see it only when it was on a black bible look like glass or clear both same size can fly small as a noseem gnat, if not smaller.
      My belief is what I seen on my body were stages of these little beetles, larvae, grub, transitioning to the next stage all different sizes different colors.
      if you need samples check that place out. I believe thousands if not millions of people have this in their body and they are told by doctors: weather, Landry soap, different types of soap, water, different types of allergies, dust, seasons, foods, metals or any kind of allergic reaction to you skin. These beetles are the smallest I’ve ever seen! I never knew they existed.
      like all bugs in disguise I think we got one just for humans.

    • Look up MORGELLONS. And there is a cure but it will take a good while. I just developed this issue myself. And I even pulled one off of my infant daughter. It is nanotechnology if some sort – I don’t buy into all of the hype but I do KNOW that this is what I suffer from.

      Hope you are well and let’s hope we can get rid of these things because the medical field will not. Blessings!

    • Hi I seem to have the same issue in have been dealing with it for 2 years now. Everyone thinks I’m crazy And unfortunately my family would rather believe that then to help me tackle this problem. At 1st I couldn’t figure out where it was coming from but there is this weird white stuff stuck to the walls in the Room and I sleep in and apparently at night or whenever I disturb it by cleaning it falls off and then after a few minutes it takes flight and infest me. It’s in my hair under my nails under my toes in my skin everywhere and anywhere that I have here it there. I would love to try the tips that everyone has shared. I have tried some things that seem to work but my problem is since no one believes me because it’s not happening to them even though I showing them the stuff on the wall in my Room in weird stuff coming out of me. Since they don’t believe me they’re not willing to help me get this thing exterminated. So I bravely sleep in this Room every night and try and do what I can to Ward them off. I was fortunate enough to be able to capture of video of the stuff falling off the wall and then Flying. Hopefully I can take it to A pest control expert you maybe they can guide me in the right direction how to get this out of my house. I’m going through some things in my Lifetime so far. But this is what seems to be a never ending traumatic event in my life this far

[note: i live in asia] I pray very night for the confort of the long sleep. I’m 75 and have nothing on my bucket list i haven’t done having travelled the world all my life and did pretty much everything i wanted to do. i have/had a great connect for permetrin 5% which only drove the mights under my skin and gave me vasculitis which is driving me crazy. caio

I used it against bird mites which is incurable but the permeation 5% really help until the day IT REALLY DIDN’T HELP. I’ve had the vasculitis now for months. It is horrible. Permethrin 5 % is a dangerous drug.

  2. I too have a tiny black insect that ubrrows under the skin or in my scalp. In
    the latter it raises bumps. If I don’t clear it out it remains. It is itchy, sometimes
    seems to raise fibrous tissue (may be something else from the black dots.
    Dropped some molecules of soap on top and it jumped aside from the drop.
    Remains in freezing weather, but my feral cats and outdoor, domesticated
    ferals seem to pass it on to me. I too wonder if I am imagining but then I find
    enough with movement. I use alcohol, predinsome-type of ointment, triple antibiotic, A&D, whatever. Takes months at times to get rid of.

    • That’s exactly what I have! Is it a parasite type of flea? I’ve paid out of pocket because my doctors that are covered by my insurance wouldn’t treat meIf. I there’s nothing anyone has said that I haven’t experienced. I try to find a doctor that Wil treat me with stromectol and permethrin cream. I come to hate doctors…I’ve been suffering with this 2 years now,my long dark Italian hair is gone. I’m trying anything and everything at this point.

      • I have likewise paid so much money out of pocket, and it was living at a rented duplex that I actually contracted this. Doctors are really of no help. They also have not tested anything, just went by what I had told them. I was prescribed permetherin 5% and Stromectol, none of which got rid of this. I am continuing to use the Bugman’s recommended regimen of baking soda, Dawn soap, apple cider vinegar, this has helped a lot. I am still open to any other suggestions. These things bite the heck out of my scalp. When I use the enzyme cleaner and cedarwood oil spray, it helps relieve some of the biting symptoms. I am now going on just past 1 year. I feel for all of us and hope to keep helping each other through this site. God bless!

      • I don’t know for sure what kind of bugs we are dealing with. I had the black specks for a while and noticed that they were actually little bugs which could crawl, jump and fly. I am not sure but I wonder now if they were fungus gnats, because I put some sheets away in the closet after washing and when I pulled them out again months later, there were dead bugs in there with wings, plus I did get a lab report back from Cornell University insect dept indicating fungus gnats were in a sample I sent to them (along with some other bugs) plus some people are posting on other sites about fungus gnats being in a lot of the Asian clothing. I am dealing with another bug mostly now, which I believe to be a phorid fly. It also infests my scalp and clothes. I am sending some samples in to Cornell this week and will let you know what I hear back.

        • Bugsheretoo,

          I hope you can get all the bugs identified. Does Cornell Uni. charge you for this? I am not sure if any of these places have all the testing equipment/knowledge necessary to identify, but I am hopeful. I do hope you and the rest of us can surely get rid of these forever. I am going to try this kerosene, just not sure where to get yet. Let us know of your progress, as I will too.

          • Amy, is this what you have been dealing with also? I’ve attached a imagehttp://imgur.com/mjZr0xI it is the shrimp or caraway seed thing I believe everyone is referring to. I happened to get a image with my flash on and there’s a worm looking body inside.

          • Yes, Cornell University does charge for this. I was surprised to get the results: fruit flies! I had over 2 dozen on my scalp / in my hair and they even laid eggs in some of my clothes which hatched out a week later. In hindsight, I believe that I may have caused the fruit fly infestation by doing the vinegar rinse in my hair several times earlier that week, so be careful with that! I am quite sure however that the fruit flies were just the last in a series of bugs in my clothes and on my body / scalp. Earlier I also had the white ones which are kind of wormy looking, the tiny black ones which I think are some kind of gnat and larger flying insects which resemble (and maybe are) some kind of moth. The good news is, I am bug free after I threw out all my clothes and started fresh again, and did a 3 week parasite cleanse (paragone), changed my diet to eliminate yeast and fructose for a while, used dandruff shampoo for a few weeks and sulfur cream from amazon on my scalp overnight once. For now I am keeping each article of my new clothing in a separate ziplock with borax until I am sure it is ok. Most of my purchases this time seem to be fine except for 2 shirts which seemed to cause lesions which look like insect bites. I am going to keep these 2 shirts in the ziplock bags with borax for another few weeks and then try again.

          • Henry,
            Thanks for the update. I am happy that you are finally bug free! I do not understand though how vinegar rinse could infest your scalp. I am adding ivermectin pour on for livestock, etc. to my scalp after showing and taking the oral ivermectin for a 30-day to help. I will keep you informed. I have been dealing with this for 1 year and 3 months. Good news is I am much less in severity than I was. I have some type of black fly left in my scalp. I believe I had a couple other parasites in addition, which are all gone. Pray for us all for this nightmare to end once and for all!!

        • Bugs, you have what’s needed! A research facility that is taking you seriously!!! My doc is on board as are two very reliable eye witnesses but four lab samples came back negative?! I have many samples and have seen them under my microscope but I had to put that away for a while and mentally chill.
          I am figuring fungus too as they seem to like our cracks and crevices, moist areas plus if they were bloodsuckers we would have bites too numerous to count! There has been another mention here of bugs coming in on clothing and that does seem a good possibility.
          I have returned to black soap and neem oil as these two very natural products are good at clearing skin infections and I am finding the longest period of relief so far (almost 24 hours). I am going to launder my clothes in it soon too and spray the house. The neem oil has a weird smell but it’s worth the relief.
          The kerosene mentioned here too is K1 kerosene available at lots DIY stores for kerosene heaters.
          Wowzer! For a lot of intelligent, suffering people to finally be validated would be HJGE! And cured would be even HUGER!!!!

          • Hi Amy, the vinegar rinse did not infest my scalp but it attracted the fruit flies onto my scalp – I believe they came from the garden. So that is why I said to be careful about the vinegar rinse which Bugman recommended – it backfired in my case. Henry

          • Dear Henry Brown.
            For clarification purposes, WTB? and The Bugman have never recommended any remedies for this situation. What we have done is to provide a platform for folks to share experiences. Many of the remedies proposed seem quite caustic in our opinion, and we take no responsibility for any negative side effects for the remedies proposed in any of the comments posted.

            With the Neem Oil ( I actually sell Neem Products in Australia) mix 50ml-70mls Neem Oil with 100mls Baby Oil and 100mls Dettol and shake before use.
            Much better mix to use. Put all over yourself before bed.

        Your body infestation is caused by collumbolla aka springtails….they appear in swarms on window sills, garages, sinks, bathtubs, soil. They burrow under human skin then began to morph.

  4. I have just this minute returned from the doctors appointment.
    4 weeks ago I was bitten all over my forearms by something. I am a massage therapist and assumed I had picked this up from an overseas client as I use my forearms to massage. I was being bitten without question. From that day on my ‘rash’ was getting worse so I went to a walk in centre, three doctors looked at me, one to treat, the other two to guage whether I was delusional or not!! I collected a sample of the bug (visible to the eye, black, about the size and shape of a caraway seed) and a colleague at work enlarged it with an app on his iphone. None of the doctors could identify it and sent me home with a topical lotion. For 4 weeks I have had these things coming out of my skin, all over my body and scalp especially when I apply oil. I have collected a fair sample and the doctors sent them to two seperate labs. The first set of tests came back as inconclusive and the second said there were no ectoparasites found. I have been off work now for 4 weeks, on stat sick pay and am still none the wiser.
    This morning the doctor offered me an appointment to see a shrink!! I am a very rational person, highly intelligent, have a lot of medical training, I work in healthcare, I am not a hypochondriac and hardly ever visit the doctor. I declined disgusted! I found your website and was relieved to hear others in the same predicament, though wouldnt wish it on anyone.

      • Hello there, Jacquelyn. I’m very happy that I’ve stumbled upon this website, as I too, am experiencing this nightmarish skin nibbling parasite, or what not. After months & months of researching on the internet I had finally decided that I must’ve contracted intestinal & skin parasites. So, I started an aggressive garlic treatment and it’s been helpful as far as ridding my insides of them but then I noticed these tiny black/brown looking spots on and under my skin and they’re all over my body from my scalp down to my toes. I’ve no clue where I could’ve possibly acquired these horrific mini monsters from but it’s driving me bananas! And now I’ve got these little white specks on my hands, fingers, and under my fingernails that hurt when I try to pick them off. And I can also see them began to fly off my skin periodically but not sure exactly how because they don’t look like they’re living critters! Anyhow, I’d very much appreciate it if you’d provide me with any info that could help rid me of these things, or maybe gradually kill them off steadily until it’s under control. Thank you,

        • I recently moved in with a friend and noticed little white specs all over my clothes shortly after finding out his house has bed bugs and I have been made a midnight meal for these voracious little bugs. However I washed and heat treated all my belongings plastic wrapped my bed and was doing great! Bed bugs solved till pest control… But then the ” white lint” was all over me and I was being bitten! Three people in the house but no one else was affected??? I saw one Lint spec that appeared to be burrowing into my skin!!! When I pulled it out it looked like a tiny white translucent bug rounded on one end and a sharp pointy needle like appendage at the other and when I pulled it out it felt like I pulled out a shard of glass. Obviously I lost what little sanity I had at this point. Everyone thought I was having a mental breakdown… Until I took a very hot bath and that’s when the fun started. I was getting uncreatable sharp piercing, stabbing pain and where the sharp pain was something large and very much resembling a tiny shrimp with a needle nose floated to the surface or sank to the bottom on my bath. I made my roommate watch as my nightmare unfolded. I gathered some bugs and put them on clear tape, bagged my clothes and went to the ER. First I was sedated because I was standing on the bed screaming I have bugs please get them out!!! They didn’t look at the white”lint” on my clothes, they said the bugs were skin, and that I was picking holes in my skin and that is what it was… Then they did look at them under a scope and was inconclusive so I either had scabies or chiggers( mind you neither one of those looked like the creatures that expelled themselves from my body mear hours ago) and sent me home with a shampoo and lotion Rx. Then my son started having the same symptoms, but the owner did not. Again went to the ER and again I was sedated and sent home. I have picked shrimp like creatures from my skin and so has my son. I have since then moved but I am itchy all the time. I feel my scalp itch but can find nothing there. I have picked at my skin compulsively and I look like a math addict. I haven’t pulled anything else from my skin but I feel them moving!!!! If you find out what this nightmare is called please email me. This is surely going to kill me I have a fear of bugs and this is pure torture!!!! I can’t take this, everyone but my ex roommate and my son are the only ones who either believe me or care to help me!! I AM NOT CRAZY NOR INSANE IHAVE BUGS UNDER MY SKIN!!!!!!! [email protected]

          • Try having a salt bath every night and then an alcohol rub. Wash your clothes in salt in warm/hot waster as well. Wash your floors in hot salt water as well. You can wash your floors with hot water with low odour kero and detergents but remember kero is flammable. Be careful.

  7. Im pretty certain that if i don’t find a cure for this it is sure to kill me because I am WAY WAY WAY outnumbered here and its starting to make me feel more lethargic and depressed, and also WEAK, like its sucking the life right out of me, so awful, and sorry so dismal, had another day of fighting I’m not crazy to boyfriend while he complains that “bugs in my skin is all i seem to talk about any more” I wouldn’t curse this on ANYONE, but some days I wish he had it for just one day to know its real, and Im not CRAZY, IM BEING EATEN AAAALLLLIIIIIVVVVVEEEE- I HOPE SOMEBODY ANSWERS ME SOON I SEE YOUR POSTS ARE MONTHS OLD AND NO ANSWER – PLEASE CONFIRM – ARE PEOPLE DYING FROM THIS???

        • Wow Guys! I know this must be extremely frustrating and frightening. My husband and I have been going through this since 2007. We lived in California’s Central Valley when we first noticed it. I can see so much of myself in your comments. No, you are not insane, but don’t expect everyone to jump on board to help you. I know you will find it hard to believe but it’s a good thing you contracted this now and not in 2007. So much research has been done over the last couple of years. The Charles E.

          • I have this and live in california as well? I was living in souther n california when i contracted this. When I visited my family for thanksgiving in San francisco I noticed that it went away. Please comment where you are from maybe we can try and locate where this “bug” is from. Also I have done a lot of research I do believe that this “bug” is something inbetween a flea and a fruit fly. Also I believe that they carry a type of fungus on them or you contracted a fungus which attracts them which is why you can live with others and they will not get them. I just got this bug in august of 2017. I moved into a house with my friend. We constantly cleaned the house because there were fruitflys EVERYWHERE he also had cats. I have moved back home to san francisco and it has pretty much diminished. Doctors have called me a meth head as well. I must admitt that I do use methamphetamines so that does not help. I will clean my carpet and not even walk on certain spots and brown cardboardlike, white shelllike and random particles will pop out. I also notice sparkles all over my skin and random black lines will appear out of no where!! I hope we can locate this bug. I am starting a book of stories o f people who live with this. Please send me pictures if you have any. Also your life story of living with this monster.

    • I have that feeling to reduce your sugar intake these things thrive off of glucose and they reproduce faster suggest a lo carb and sugar diet.

      My doctors call this paranoid parasitic delusional other words they don’t know what they’re looking at. Didn’t even look in my eyes my ears my mouth my rectum nothing I brought them a stool sample they said that there was nothing there which I know is a total lie because if there were going to do a blood sample and never did still haven’t got the results after 4 weeks it seems like there’s a big cover up going on here and lots of people have this and I just noticed a black helicopter pad thai paranoia and no I’m not crazy and none of us are.

  9. I am still suffering. The doctor has now referred me to a dermatologist and has said she thinks it is dermatitis!! I have written a heart felt letter to the head of the School of Tropical medicine, and so far have had no reply. My employer has emailed to say that she will have no choice but to let me go if this continues without an identification and a conclusion. I am going to buy a microscope today. We all need concrete ID of these things, otherwise to the Med Community, they dont exist. Something exists if it is present and more than one person at site can see the same thing, NOT… If they cannot ID it, it dosnt exist, which is my story so far.

    Lets look at this as a project, an anomaly that needs an answer. Observe their behaviour, note your observations then lets all compare notes. Pressure groups are us!!!

  11. By the way, I have done a lot of research and the nearest thing I can come up with in terms of behaviour and looks is Collembolla, or springtails as they are more commonly known. There are differing views on whether or not they can attach themselves to humans. There are researched accounts of this from Sweden. If you google, you will find the info. See if it rings any bells.

  13. please does any one have a answer to what these are my parents have had these bugs for almost 9 months and 2 doctors says there crazy and the other 2 say its a bug un identified is there a cure

      • I’m almost positive that this bug belongs to the order strepseniptera(the twisted- wing parasites) which are a very unusual group of insects that show extreme differences between the sexes. And life stages. I currently have this infestation ion my van that I’m traveling in and am experiencing all the same symptoms detailed in these comments. I used a good magnifying glass and compared pictures of its life stages from journals with my own observations. The worms inside the body are the 2nd larval instant. The lobsters under the toe and finger nails are the mature female insect. Somehow an infected wasp got into my van and the female released tons of 1st larval instars that now has no host to feed on but me and adapted to humans right there. More to come later but I’m about 3 months into this parasite infection and was losing hope as it steadily got worse but my hope of a cure has returned as I now know what it is . A twisted-wing Parasite insect.

        • I recently came to the same conclusion after the other reference to a fly. When I saw pics of the stages I became more sure because of the shapes and colors. It is not considered to use humans as a host but it’s entirely possible they have adapted. Do we happen to have the right body chemistry to foster them? Delusional parasitosis diagnosis comes because we can’t simply point to insects crawling on our skins although, I made sure to oil my skin for my doc so he has no doubts something is going on even though four lab results with multi specimens came back as saying nothing was in there, including the slide my doc sent in. I believe we are solving this mystery on our own though, so keep it up folks. I do believe we can figure this out 🙂 I request that people try to post their pictures again? I don’t know if this whole site is having trouble with posting pics?

          • I agree to what I have now left is some kind of fly family. I have killed a lot of this from my body, but my scalp is what is predominantly left infested. I am going to try the kerosene and continue with what I have been using. Lets continue to keep ourselves updated and hope to try to post some pics.

          • IMesostigmata mites is what James Cook a University Townsville. Queensland Australua said transmitted from rats. Infestations but the more I look at it, I think there is a parasite coming in our imported clothing from China. This problem is happening worldwide. Look at one of the above replies to see how we deal with it. We are 85% better than where we first started 8 months ago

      • I am going to infectious disease Monday. I have the same thing with the samples. Good luck to everyone I will be in touch as soon as possible. He is young and very open minded. I also have quadraplegic. 42 years ago. Horse bucking. I also live close to a 500 feet flood zone. The hurricane is coming close to us. I also have a cat. And a lot of flies have been in the house. The biting gnats and the fruit flies. I have samples on my phone screen. Does anyone know how to photograph your screen. I do it by accident sometimes lol

  14. My family and I have this same issue. I am unable to work or help my family. I, also, feel as if I’m being totally consumed by this thing. it has been over a year i started getting stinging bites, my head would tingle and my hair would actually start parting on its own (Others who thought I was insane finally witnessed this for themselves-FINALLY). I also get an unusual extreme chill, as if ice is running throungh my viens. These things are everywhere. My ears, nose, urine, EVERYWHERE!!! There appears to be some type of cycle.
    I first started noticing things going on in my house. IN-which seemed normal at first. When I realized something was terribly wrong I started calling home inspectors, numerous exterminator, mold remediation has been done at costly expense, my dogs have been to 5 different vet on about 15 different occasions, and no answers. I won’t go to the doctors because i know they are going to act as if I’m crazy.
    I spend every waking moment with a flashlight, magnifying glass and sample containers in my hand collecting samples. I feel as if I’m in a science fiction movie or living in a nightmare.
    My 38 year old sister, who had been diagnose as being HIV positive a few years ago, but had no complications or medical concerns (meaning her numbers were great), stayed at my house for 4 1/2 months. She moved out on March 20, 2013. March 26th she went back (follow-up on lab work) to infectious decease doc and was told everything was great. On March 28, 2013 she was dead. We (including her 11,14,17,19 yr old children) were told she had a terrible lung infection but know how, when or where she got it. I often wander if my home played a part in this. About 2 months after being in my home she started feeling some of the symptoms I continuously bitched about. I tried to hide some of the things that were happening to me because I didn’t want my sister and partner to think I was losing my mind. But now my partner has the same thing happening to her and my baby sister is dead. I am beginning to think it is a plague. This thing is real, alive, mentally and physical destructive and will not die. Please help

    • Start bathing in salt water not sure if you live close enough to swim in the sea every day or put 2 cups of salt into your bath tub. You can buy pool salt which is cheaper. Alcohol rubs also help. Water soluble tea tree works well too. You are not going crazy. Hang in there. Wash all of your clothes in hot salty water as well. Change your sheets every day and wash in hot salty water. Buy a steam cleaner and after vacuuming. Steam over the carpets. Wipe down all surfaces with windex or an alcohol wipe. Get rid of clutter and anything they can breed in. It is not worth keeping things that are going to cause you grief. Keep your house simple to clean every day. Spray your cars out as well. You can make up a low odour kero spray with warm water and detergent and spray your car and carpets. It is flammable so be careful. Do not spray around wiring etc. wash yourself from the head to the foot with an insecticide or neem soap or a tea tree soap. Do not retrace back up the body to wash. We are washing down and out. Mop the shower recesses with low odour kero in hot water and detergent. Be diligent in your cleansing and cleaning daily.

  16. Hi everyone. I went to a dermatology appointment last week and took my sample pot with me. The doctor showed me under a microscope what the black things were. And I saw it with my own eyes….they were fibres not bugs!! I was shocked!He said there was something wrong with the serum layer of my skin and felt fibres from my clothes were sticking to it and when I massage they come off. My question was, why has this never happened in 20 years of massaging and why do I feel like I am being bitten?!! answer…over active immune system. Steroid cream and antihistamines were prescribed. Im still itching and feel like Im being bitten. Maybe if these things exist, they chew on our clothing. I really dont know what to think now…just shocked
    Has anyone got any further with this?

    • Omg!
      Dammit…. I think we are going crazy then…. lol jk.
      I noticed that too when I tried telling the exterminator about them yesterday, but everything I thought to be one was indeed fiber. But at times yes they do bite, and squinting my eyes looking closer yet carefully; they do appear to have very small legs and might be related to possums since they tend not to move when you are able to grab one. Come to think of it, I have seen a few runner over possums up the street. Well we know that when any pest infected animal dies, insects quickly try to find a new home/host.
      Omg!!!
      Could there be such thing as possum fleas/lice in this case it should be called
      “Possum Dotukrazie”.
      Any Possum siting prior to contracting these, anyone?

      • When the bug is on your clothes it grabs fibers while its burrowing to your skin. Thats why she just saw fibers you probably did not grab the bug. trust me i thought i grabbed one plenty of times.

  18. I think I may have the same thing burrowed under my skin. Was diagnosed with scabies & prescribed Permethrin cream. It helped a little for a few days (calmed them) but did not I’ll them. I have pictures & samples but don’t know where to send them. They sometimes appear as tiny worms with a long pointed nose. Sometimes, little black secs. If I rub anything menthol on my skin, Tiny black curly things pop out. I wipe them off my skin But if I don’t catch them right away, they burrow back into my skin. They are also embedded under my fingernails. If I rub Bengay cream or icy hot cream it makes it tolerable. I used some Providine Iodine solution yesterday and hundreds of them came out of my skin. Once I discovered that, I added Providine solution to some menthol bath gel then used it in the shower. I’ll buy more today and will add it to a bath to soak in. I am in California. I found something called “Dr. Teals Epsom salt bath soak” that also helps tremendously at Wal-Mart. The one with eucalyptus & menthol is good and the muscle formula with peppermint even better. I am praying to find something to kill them completely.

  20. Hi I live in Australia and I suffer similar symptoms on a daily basis… Try this people. I got some kerosene and put that into my scalp. I used the one with the blue dye, but should have used the clear one. I left it in my scalp for a few hours. It seemed to help as whatever I have would react to when I went to the bathroom or passed by my fridge these things would go nuts, itching , burning crawling feeling. I had to pick mountainous scabs out to stop the itch. Kerosene seemed to really help it. Google it, but stay away from naked flames as it’s highly flammable… Then wash it out later. I also use methylated spirits as a rinse over my body after I have washed myself in QV wash. I used 1 part methylated spirits to 3 parts water in a mixing bowl and pour that over myself ensuring not to get it in your eyes as it can make one go blind, but it does amazing things for itch as I suffer from eczema as well. Use at your own risk but I am just writing to tell you what works for me. Good luck dear friends God bless xxxxxxX

Plus it hurts me too c is very strong so I try not to do this on a daily basis, also another thing I just discovered that helps is coconut oil. My plan is to use a humidifier with the Vicks not see what that does. Has anyone attempt this please let me know? Thanks and good luck!

        • Yes, sorry, I meant the holes in my skin Mine are mostly covered by that clear or pink substance that to everyone else looks like affected skin, and when I try to show my kids the holes underneath, which are plain as day to me,big and dark and scary looking, they look at me like I’ve lost it and tell me there’s nothing there but a “rash”. Same with the doctors. I don’t even say anything about holes anymore. My situation is a little different from what I’ve gathered others on here is, as I am bipolar. I’ve been on medication for years, see a doc regularly, am high functioning and very intelligent but when I tried to tell my doc about this, he threatened to hospitalize me!

I don’t know that’s what it’s really called, but that’s what everyone calls it. What have tried using? What’s given u relief ?
            When did this start for u? R u able to pin point it to a specific time frame.
            Some people know EXACTLY when it started. One person sat in a couch that had been sitting outside all year. Several think they got from staying in a hotel room. Others from bird mites. Then finding a nest in the eaves of their home.
            Some found mold in there house. Once they got rid of the mold the symptoms went away.
            Mold and fungus spores also cause itching. Also feelings of being bit or stung.
            One person found mold in their AC unit! Every time they ran it it was forcing mold spores into their house. U breath this in and it becomes systemic. Meaning it’s growing in you. That’s what attracts the bugs for some people is the systemic mold in their body.
            That could be what’s causing the odor u mention.
            Mold can make you very very ill.
            There is also a fungus call SPORO SCHENKII. Gardners can get it From the soil or mulch. Sporo is found worldwide. Your pets can get it also and they can pass it to you.
            I have more to share.

        • Originally I was responding to Matthew, but then I saw someone else’s comment (sorry, I can’t seem to find it at the moment) about the holes in their skin and was amaand while you watch azed to hear that someone else had this too. I have been told for months that I’m seeing things, it’s my medication (I even stopped taking it for a month which I never do just to be sure) and threatened with the nuthouse. It’s terrible to be suffering with this crap, not know what is wrong with you, and while you watch yourself be eaten alive have everyone doubt your sanity to the point YOU start to doubt it. I’m so glad to find out I’m not the only one!

          • I’ve had this for 8 months now, and knew I could not be the only one, as messed up as this is. I’ve learned a lot just reading other people’s posts, but it terrifies me to hear that some people have had this for years. I can’t imagine living like this that long. My body is a mess and they have taken over so fast it’s amazing. My hands and arms are already turning purple. I will continue to try what I’m learning here, and it’s comforting to know I’m not a freak and I’m not losing it. There really are other people who are going through the same thing. Does anyone else notice a horrible smell, like rotting? I keep thinking something on me is rotting, I smell it no matter how much I shower. It’s driving me crazy.
